The Lord Reigns!
By June Stein
Whatever state the world is in today,
From our own country, to those far away,
There is nothing happening, now,
Of which our God is not aware,
His Power is Almighty,
Before Him all nations lay bare.
All on earth who relish their power,
Are allowed their short season to reign,
They will be gone in due time,
God, for all time and eternity,
Is, and was, and will remain!
By His Word was all creation made.
His Word is right and true;
He is faithful in all He does,
The Lord loves righteousness and justice,
The earth is full of His unfailing Love,
There for those who are not too blind to see,
In Him, alone, are we truly free.
We wait in hope for the Lord;
He is our help and our shield,
The Lord foils the plans of the nations,
He thwarts the purposes of the peoples,
But the plans of the Lord stand firm forever,
And in His perfect time, are revealed.
In Him our hearts rejoice,
For we trust in His Holy Name,
Our times are in His Mighty hand,
Now and forever still the same!
[Based on Psalm 33]
