1 Why are the nations conspiring to turn from your name?
Why the rebellion that casts off all law and restraint?
Our God rules in the heavens,
now hear his word of command:
Christ is King of all the nations,
our times are in his hand.

2 Grant us the wisdom to live in eternity's light.
Open the eyes of the nations to worship the Christ!
Our God rules...

Who is the Lord? Who is the King?
Fling wide the gates!
Let the King of glory in!

3 Why are the nations conspiring to turn from your name?
Why the rebellion that casts off all law and restraint?
Our God rules...

Who is the Lord? Who is the King?
Fling wide the gates!
Let the King of glory in!

Our God rules in the heavens,
now hear his word of command:
Christ is King of all the nations,
our times are in his hand,
they're in his hand,
they're in his hand.
