Our God Reigns

Words and Music:     Lenny Smith, c1970
      How lovely on the mountains are the feet of him 
         who brings good news, good news!
      Announcing peace, proclaiming news of happiness
         Our God reigns, our God reigns!
      Our God reigns!  Our God reigns!
      Our God reigns!  Our God reigns!
      He had no stately form, He had no majesty 
         That we should be drawn to Him.
      He was despised and we took no account of Him
         Yet now He reigns with the Most High.
      It was our sin and guilt that bruised and wounded Him
         It was our sin that brought Him down
      When we like sheep had gone astray, Our Shepherd came
         And on His shoulders bore our shame.
      Meek as a lamb that's led out to the slaughter-house,
         Dumb as a sheep before its sheerer
      His life ran down upon the ground like pouring rain
         That we might be born again.
      Out from the tomb He came with grace and majesty;
         He is alive, He is alive!
      God loves us so, see here His hands, His feet, His side.
         Yes, we know He is alive!
