Psalm 99 (The Lord God Reigns)

Words: The Psalter 1912
Tune: I Sing the Mighty Power of God
“Ellacombe” by Gesangbuch der Herzol 1784
[Key: C]

Verse 1
The LORD God reigns in majesty;
Let all the nations quake.
He dwells between the cherubim;
Let earth’s foundations shake.
Supreme in Zion is the LORD,
Exalted gloriously.
All nations, praise His name with awe:
The Holy One is He!

Verse 2
The mighty King loves justice well,
And equity ordains;
He rules His people righteously
And faithfulness maintains.
O magnify the LORD our God,
Let Him exalted be!
In worship at His footstool bow:
The Holy One is He!

Verse 3
When priests and prophets called on God,
He their petitions heard.
His cloudy pillar led them on,
And they obeyed His word.
Tho’ sending judgments for their sins,
He pardoned graciously.
Exalt the LORD and worship Him:
The Holy One is He!
