From 1741, look at this - Handel's great work as the chorus reached a crescendo.
For the lord God omnipotent reignethHallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujahHallelujah
The kingdom of this world; Is becomeThe kingdom of our Lord,And of His Christ, And of His Christ
And He shall reign forever and ever,And He shall reign forever and ever,
And remember also from the book of Revelation: This kingdom is a vast multitude which no man can number.
Praise his mighty name! All those whose names are written in his book!
One of the great things about the Christmas season is this great chorus, and other great carols like "Hark the Herald Angels Sing." Just listen to the triumphant words!
