Refrain:    The Lord shall reign for ever and ever.

1    The Lord is king and has put on glorious apparel;  

the Lord has put on his glory

and girded himself with strength.

2    He has made the whole world so sure  

that it cannot be moved.

3    Your throne has been established from of old;  

you are from everlasting. [R]

4    The floods have lifted up, O Lord,

the floods have lifted up their voice;  

the floods lift up their pounding waves.

5    Mightier than the thunder of many waters,

mightier than the breakers of the sea,  

the Lord on high is mightier.

6    Your testimonies are very sure;  

holiness adorns your house, O Lord, for ever.

Refrain:    The Lord shall reign for ever and ever.

Christ our King,

you put on the apparel of our nature

and raised us to your glory;

reign from your royal throne

above the chaos of this world,

that all may see the victory you have won

and trust in your salvation;

for your glory’s sake.
