40 million babies lost to Gods great orphanage,
It’s a modern day genocide and a modern day disgrace
If this is a human right then why aren’t we free?
The only freedom we have is in a man nailed to a tree.

100 million faces, staring at the sky,
Wondering if this HIV will ever pass us by.
The devil stole the rain and hope trickles down the plug,
But still my Chinese take away could pay for someone’s drugs.

Our God reigns, Our God reigns,
Forever your kingdom reigns.

The west has found a gun and it’s loaded with ‘unsure’
Nip and tuck if you have the bucks in a race to find a cure.
Psalm one hundred and thirty nine is the conscience to our selfish crime,
God didn’t screw up when he made you,
He’s a father who loves to parade you.

Yes he reigns, yes you reign, yes you reign,
For there is only one true God,
But we’ve lost the reins on this world,
Forgive us all, forgive us please,
As we fight for this broken world on our knees

    The young people in the audience are cheering the music because they are excited about god - in this dying world - that makes me excited and it reminds me that our god truly reigns and is returning

    This song calls america to see who they really are as the world sees them. God knows us as we are & as we pretend to be. When we repent we'll be forgiven & god will heal our land & bring us back into fellowship with him.

    This is a really great song, questioning society and saying that through all the chaos of suffering, our God still reigns! Don't blame Him for all the mess we've made of the world!
