Davidic Dominion

"David gat him a name when he returned from smiting of the Syrians in the valley... And David reigned over all Israel; and David executed judgment and justice unto all his people" (2 Samuel 8:13,15).  "The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: He uttered his voice, the earth melted… Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth" (Psalm 46:6-10).  "Sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace" (Romans 6:14). 

In David's kingdom we can see
The shadow of much greater things
When Christ shall reign in majesty
As Lord of lords and King of kings. 

The Lord exalted David's throne
To manifest His own dominion
And make a name that would be known,
Refuting every false opinion. 

"Be still" our God has said to us,
For He shall surely be exalted. 
The Lord shall reign victorious
When all His enemies are halted. 

O Lord, now come and reign within,
Extending Your Davidic reign
By Your dominion over sin
As grace enlarges Your domain!
