The Lord Reigns

There is a song that is popular with our youth:

The Lord reigns; He is a mighty God.
The Lord God reigns.
The Lord reigns; He is a mighty God.
The Lord God reigns.
Great is the Lord Almighty,
He is Lord, He is God, indeed.
Great is the Lord Almighty,
He is God supreme.
Great is the Lord Almighty,
He is Lord, He is God, indeed.
Great is the Lord. Great is the Lord.

I have no real idea who composed the music or wrote the lyrics because this is one I learned the old fashioned way – by singing, by listening to those who love the Lord and just want to sing about Him.

God’s Reign should impact what we do, how we live, how we act and react to those around us. I love songs and verses that pull on that theme and remind me to worship the only one who truly reigns – God.

Exodus 15:18 “The Lord reigns for ever and ever.”

1 Chronicles 16:31 Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; let them say among the nations, “The Lord reigns!”

Psalm 9:7 The Lord reigns forever; he has established his throne for judgment.

Psalm 93:1 The Lord reigns, he is robed in majesty; the Lord is robed in majesty and armed with strength; indeed, the world is established, firm and secure.

Isaiah 57:2 How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, “Your God reigns!”

Revelation 19:6 Then I heard what sounded like a great multitude, like the roar of rushing waters and like loud peals of thunder, shouting: “Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns.”

The challenge this week was for rain & God’s reign. I chose to focus on just the one because it is where my mind stayed. There are plenty of verses that bring those two together –

I Kings 18:41 where God’s prophet spoke about the coming rain. He could not have know without God reigning over all the world.

Genesis 6-7 and the account of the global flood that God sent shows that He is reigning.

God used rain, along with hail and thunder, in showing his power among the Egyptians in Genesis 9.

These are just a few of the verses and references that come up on the first page of results by searching at BibleGateway for the word rain. What a mighty God we have. The Lord Reigns!

    I learnt this song the old way too – taught by my mother as she played the piano and asked me to repeat each line after her

    Brings me back to my childhood, can you post an mp3 of this song?

    Funny I just realized this is a site about homeschooling. I was homeschooled too, best 8 years of my life

      I do not have an mp3 of the song. Perhaps you can do a search for it and find a recording you like.
      Thank you for your comment.

        Finally found it on Youtube! Maranatha 7

        Just curious about the “youth” that you mentioned in this song being “popular with our youth”

        Are you talking about your youth or is there really a pocket of young people in the US like me who grew up on these old songs? I’m in my mid-20’s btw

        So glad to hear that you found it! I wondered if it might be on YouTube.

        When I mentioned our youth, I was referring to the youth group and families in our congregation. For us, that runs the gamut from elementary aged students (and perhaps some younger siblings) through our high schoolers and their parents. We also have college students and young professionals join in the youth and family devotionals that our congregation holds monthly during the school year. So, it truly is popular with the youth all the way up through those like me that are approaching 50 and beyond. 🙂
