Our God Reigns

As K and I were listening to the radio today there was much talk of the election. Much concern about the President Elect. One thing that was mentioned was that we all need to pray. Pray for each other, this country and of course, the new President. God is and always was in control. Call out to Him.
And then this song come on the radio. As I listened to the chorus, I was reminded that He reigns, now and forever. Keep your faith where it belongs--on our one true leader. Not in a mere human who is not perfect and will make mistakes.

Newsboys - He Reigns
From the album Adoration: The Worship Album

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

(CHOURS)
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

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

(CHOURS)
When all God's children sing out
Glory, glory, hallelujah, He reigns
He reigns
All God's children sing out
Glory, glory, hallelujah, He reigns
He Reigns
All God's children sing out
Glory, glory, hallelujah, He reigns
He Reigns
