Amid the Fears that Oppress Our Day by Margaret Clarkson

Amid the fears that oppress our day,
Across the clouds that obscure our way,
One golden truth sheds its shining ray—
Our God is sovereign still.

Refrain

His holy purpose unchanging stands,
The stars still turn at their Lord’s commands;
He holds the world in His mighty hands—
Our God is sovereign still!
Our God is sovereign still!

Though wars may rise, and though kingdoms fall,
Though ills may threaten, and fears enthrall,
Our God still lives, and He hears our call—
Our God is sovereign still.

Refrain

Though fierce the fight ’gainst the hosts of wrong,
His Word is sure, and His arm is strong;
The day is His: raise His triumph song—
Our God is sovereign still.

Refrain

When Christ shall come to receive His own,
When His the kingdom, the pow’r, the throne,
Eternal King He shall reign alone—
Our God is sovereign still.

Refrain
