Our God Reigns

CCLI Number: 8458

You may have heard this song before. It was written by my friend Lenny Smith. Lenny sent me a package with several new songs, and this one. It's always been one of my favorites. - Elton June 26, 1999

(Verse 1)
How lovely on the mountains
are the feet of him
Who bring 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!

(Verse 2)
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.

Our God reigns! Our God reigns!
Our God reigns! Our God reigns!

(Verse 3)
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.

Our God reigns! Our God reigns!
Our God reigns! Our God reigns!

(Verse 4)
Meek as a lamb that's led out to the slaughterhouse,
Dumb as a sheep before its shearer,
His life ran down upon the ground like pouring rain
That we might be born again.

Our God reigns! Our God reigns!
Our God reigns! Our God reigns!

(Verse 5)
Out of 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.

Our God reigns! Our God reigns!
Our God reigns! Our God reigns!
Our God reigns! Our God reigns!
Our God reigns! Our God reigns!

Thanks Lenny for this song that has been an inspiration for at least 20years.
Pray to shake your hands someday, either on this side or when we shall sing together at the throne of God.from Nigeria 11.12.2022

This song has encouraged me over the years THANKS for sharing
I am familiar with only the chorus of this song long ago but Providence brought the full version to me today. What a wonderful celebration of Jesus Christ our Lord. Yes, He reigns!
We sing this all the time.
I love to worship with this song.
Yes our god reigns

Amazing song of worship and mind blowing spirit when sung from the heart
I heard this hymn at the funeral of Tommy Burns the footballer. I loved the tune and the words do something to me, wonderful
Great! I agree with the sentiments of the one who left the last comment I read. Until I went online I did not know there were more than 2 verses to this great song. I had heard those verses sung by the late Bob Cain. Thank you Lord! Thank you Lenny Smith.
Plz can u make ur site more mobile friendly, i do not own a computer as i am a disabled person and live on very little money. I av been trying for over two hours to download musioc from ur site and it is proving difficult to 'catch' ur lists as they fly past failling to stop so i can view them. All i want is some music on my phone and i am not allowed that either!

Lenny, I love this song, but most churches that I have heard it sung in do not include the verses to the song.... only my God reigns! I think that does your song an injustice. The words to this song are simply powerful and fantastic.

I downloaded this gorgeous song from Songs of Praise when it was first introduced as an instrumental. Like several other inspirational songs from this web site, I often play it in the evening just before retiring for bed. It's one of my favorite among the newer Christian songs of today.
Thank you for sharing such beautiful and peaceful music to all of us in cyberspace.
God Bless!

Listening to this song again after a few years warms my heart to true reverence, of the ONE who came to give all, as undeserving as we are. God bless LSmith for giving himself for God to give us this song. Amen

This should be under Easter Songs. JMHO. I am singing it this Easter. OUR GOD REIGNS!!!
I love singing though with a bad voice. that does not matter. I enjoy listening to gospel music. this is one of those that keep reminding me that God is God. There is no substitute for Him.
Nchindo Mbukusa (nmbukusa_AT_unam_DOT_na)
i enjoyed because it speaks to the spirit man confirmation/ declaration of OUR LIVING GOD!!!
This song never gets old. It is alive. It is anointed. So glad you gave an opportunity to hear and sing it again. Thank you.
Cathy (cathytrax_AT_clearwire_DOT_net)
This is one of the favourite songs. It expresses in music powerful message on whose our faith stands. Our God reigns, He is alive and lives forever. He is greater than the greatest, and higher than the highest. He has no equal, and His majesty is awesome.

I am very proud to belong to HIM.
