He Shall Reign by Tom Wuest

This was the song we sang in church yesterday, the song that was planned before Friday morning, but suddenly meant so much more, the song that burns in my heart every advent, ever since that night in Vancouver when we lit up Victoria Drive with our candles and our songs, the song that we've introduced everywhere we've been since, the song that is itself a gift of hope.  You can listen to it here.


He shall reign 

Come broken, come captive 
Come all you who mourn 
Oh groaning creation, rejoice 
A child, a savior, our healing he brings. 
What freedom! What consolation! 

He shall reign (He shall reign), He shall reign 
He shall reign (He shall reign), He shall reign 

He’ll order his kingdom 
With justice and peace 
Oh merciful one, oh Lamb of God 
All nations, all people All heaven and earth 
Will bow down and to Him proclaim 


He shall reign (He shall reign), He shall reign 
He shall reign (He shall reign), He shall reign

  1. I would think this would have multiple layers of meaning for you this year. Be well, and blessed Christmas, my friend.
