Reigning and Reasoning

"The LORD reigneth; let the people tremble… Thou answeredst them, O LORD our God: Thou wast a God that forgavest them" (Psalm 99:1,8).  "Treasures of wickedness profit nothing: but righteousness delivereth from death" (Proverbs 10:2).  "Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow" (Isaiah 1:18).  "Ye shall be witnesses unto Me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth" (Acts 1:8). 

The Lord is reigning on His throne
Where judgment has been satisfied,
And we are called to make it known
That by His cross we're justified! 

Our Lord is holy, yet forgives
The sinners that He died to bless. 
As our High Priest He ever lives
To save us by His righteousness. 

Today He calls the lost to reason;
It's foolish to procrastinate! 
There may not be another season;
Tomorrow could be one day late. 

O Lord, we know that You are reigning
And reasoning with sinful men
As with Your Word we are explaining
The Gospel till You come again.
