He reigns

It’s the song of the redeemed, rising from the African plain
It’s the song of the forgiven, drowning out the Amazon rain
The song of Asian believers, filled with God’s holy fire
It’s every tribe, every tongue, every nation, a love song born of a grateful choir

It’s all God’s children singing, glory, glory, Hallelujah, He reigns, He reigns
It’s all God’s children singing, glory, glory, Hallelujah, He reigns, He reigns

Let it rise above the four winds, caught up in the heavenly sound
Let praises echo from the towers of cathedrals,
to the faithful gathered underground
Of all the songs sung from the dawn of creation, some were meant to persist
Of all the bells rung from a thousand steeples, none rings truer than this

It’s all God’s children singing, glory, glory, Hallelujah, He reigns, He reigns

And all the powers of darkness, tremble at what they’ve just heard
‘Cause all the powers of darkness, can’t drown out a single word

When all God’s children sing out, glory, glory, Hallelujah, He reigns, He reigns
All God’s children singing, glory, glory, Hallelujah, He reigns, He reigns
