Verse 1O wherefore do the nations rage,And kings and rulers strive in vain,Against the Lord of earth and heav’nTo overthrow Messiah’s reign?
Verse 2Their strength is weakness in the sightOf Him Who sits enthroned above;He speaks, and judgments fall on themWho tempt His wrath and scorn His love.
Verse 3By God’s decree His Son receivesThe nations for His heritage;The conqu’ring Christ supreme shall reignAs King of kings, from age to age.
Verse 4Be wise, ye rulers of the earth,And serve the Lord with godly fear;With rev’rent joy confess the SonWhile yet in mercy He is near.
Verse 5Delay not, lest His anger rise,And ye should perish in your way;Lo, all that put their trust in HimAre blest indeed, and blest for aye.
