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

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 about the four winds
Caught up in the heavenly sound
Let praises echo from the towers of cathedrals
To the faithful gathered UNDER GROUND
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

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
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


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

When all God's children sing out
Glory, glory, hallelujah
He reigns, He reigns
All God's people singing
Glory, glory, hallelujah
He reigns, He reigns

    The earth will move, the mountains will tremble and every knee shall bow. The voice of millions will sing out with the angels. Holy hallelujah
    He Reigns. The power of alll these voices will drive the dark away to far places. The Power of Christ will shine on all and those that fear the light will seek the dark and they will not find it. All will stand in front of his majesty and be judged by thier words and actions. Did they stand tall and unbowing for Christ, or did they fall to the side and mocked Christ with thier heart and lips? The entire world while be judged, the voices of the holy and the righteous will keep singing out his praises and the darkness will try but can not drown out the voices of god children!
