Our God Forever ReignsDon Fortner

(Tune: #39 — This is My Father’s World — SMD)


1.    Our God forever reigns

Upon His sov’reign throne;

In heaven, earth and hell, He reigns,

And makes His wonders known!

His holy, wise decrees,

Firmer than mountains stand;

Jehovah does whate’er He please,

And none can stay His hand!


2.    All worlds, our God controls,

By His own sov’reign will;

Has mercy on all chosen souls

And hardens whom He will.

Jacob by grace He saved,

And gives no reason why;

But Esau’s heart, He left depraved; —

And who shall dare reply?


3.    Sov’reign, the Potter takes

Part of a lump of clay,

And for Himself a vessel makes,

And casts the rest away!

Who shall resist His will?

Or say “What doest Thou?”

Jehovah is the sov’reign still,

To Him we humbly bow.
