371. God is gone up on high

1 God is gone up on high,
with a triumphant noise;
the clarions of the sky
proclaim the angelic joys!

Join all on earth, rejoice and sing;
glory ascribe to glory’s king.

2 God in the flesh below,
for us he reigns above:
let all the nations know
our Jesus’ conquering love! [Refrain]

3 All power to our great Lord
is by the Father given;
by angel hosts adored,
he reigns supreme in heaven. [Refrain]

4 High on his holy seat
he bears the righteous sway;
his foes beneath his feet
shall sink and die away. [Refrain]

5 His foes and ours are one,
Satan, the world, and sin;
but he shall tread them down
and bring his kingdom in: [Refrain]

6 till all the earth, renewed
in righteousness divine,
with all the hosts of God
in one great chorus join. [Refrain]
