The Lord eternal reigns

The Lord eternal reigns,
his throne is built on high;
the kingly robes he wears
are light and majesty:
his glories shine with beams so bright
no mortal eye can bear the sight.

2. The thunders of his hand
keep the wide world in awe;
his wrath and justice stand
to guard his holy law;
and where his love resolves to bless
his truth confirms and seals the grace.

3. Through all his mighty works
amazing wisdom shines,
confounds the powers of hell
and breaks their cursed designs;
strong is his arm, and shall fulfil
his great decrees and sovereign will.

4. And can this glorious King
to human hearts descend?
And will he write his name
my Father and my friend?
I love his name, I love his word;
let all my being praise the Lord!
