The Sovereignty Of God

This is another poem from “Echoes Of Eternity” by Michael R Abbott; used with permission.  Today, 12th May, is actually International ME Awareness Day - a good time to remember that God is sovereign over all and, for those who are His, whatever our circumstances, "the eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms" (Deuteronomy 33 v 27.

The Sovereignty Of God

The Lord, in glory, reigns supreme,
Angels declare this wondrous theme:
"Omnipotent, He reigns on high."
"Amen," our mortal lips reply.

O'er all the earth, His power holds sway:
His will is done by night and day.
Let men deny His truth and might:
It cannot change His sovereign right.

The sands of time are sinking low,
And sin abounds that men might know
The righteous judgments of the Lord,
The vengeance of His flaming sword.

Though buildings close and meetings cease,
The Church of God shall still increase;
For, added to the host above,
Are those saved daily by God's love.

The powers of darkness have their way,
But never shall they win the day:
"Thus far," the Master has decreed,
And there they halt and then recede.

Soon shall the glorious day appear
As, to His Church, the Lord draws near,
To take her for His Holy Bride,
To reign forever at His side.
