1 The Lord is King! He set the stars in space,
and fashioned all our varied human race.
Creator God whose hand sustains us still,
your kingdom stands, and all things serve your will.

2 The Lord is King! He sent his Son to earth,
his glory laid aside in human birth.
O Saviour Christ, who died and rose again,
your kingdom comes where in our lives you reign.

3 The Lord is King! He sent his Spirit here
to heal and save, to banish doubt and fear.
Spirit of truth, exalt the Living Word,
whose kingdom grows till all shall own him Lord.

4 The Lord is King! From all in earth and heaven
be blessing, honour, praise and glory given.
While earthy kingdoms fade and cease to be,
God's kingdom lasts for all eternity.
