I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Revelation 19:6
Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.

The Lord omnipotent shall reign
Where’er the sun doth shine;
His right to rule earth’s kings shall own,
And bless His sway divine.
Then magnify His matchless name,
Let anthems ring from shore to shore;
On sea and land, in loud acclaim,
Exalt Him evermore.
The Lord commands, and it stands fast,
He speaks, and it is done;
Forevermore His reign shall last,
Enduring is His throne.
He calls us now to do and dare,
The world for Christ to gain,
That in His kingdom we may share,
As kings and priests to reign.
