1 God is king the nations tremble,
he is throned the earth is quaking;
Lord supreme, the people praise him:
Holy, holy, holy!

2 God is king he calls for justice,
he proclaims his righteous judgement;
Lord supreme, the people praise him:
Holy, holy, holy!

3 God is king, yet all may know him
priests and prophets heard his precepts;
Lord supreme, the people praise him:
Holy, holy, holy!

4 God is king, yet he forgives us,
bears our sins in his own body;
Lord supreme, the people praise him:
Holy, holy, holy!
