From: Tim Felten firstname.lastname@example.org WORDS & MUSIC: Kittie Louise Suffield(1884-1972) capo on 1st fret GOD IS STILL ON THE THRONE VERSE 1: G C G Have you started for glory and Heaven? C G Have you left this old world far behind? G C G In your heart is the Comforter dwelling? A7 D Can you say, “Praise the Lord, He is mine”? G C G Have the ones that once walked on the highway C G Gone back, and you seem all a-lone? D G C Keep your eyes on the prize, for the home in the skies; G/D D7 G God is still on the throne. CHORUS: G God is still on the throne, C G And He will remember His own; D7 Em Tho’ trials may press us and burdens distress us, A7 D7 He never will leave us a-lone; G God is still on the throne, C G He never forsaketh His own; D G C His promise is true, He will not forget you, G/D D7 G God is still on the throne. VERSE 2: Burdened soul, is your heart growing weary With the toil and the heat of the day? Does it seem that your path is more thorny As you journey along on life’s way? Go away and in secret before Him Tell your grief to the Savior alone; He will lighten your care, for He still answers prayer; God is still on the throne. (REPEAT CHORUS) VERSE 3: You may live in a tent or a cottage, Unnoticed by those who pass by; But a mansion for you He is building In that beautiful city on high; It will outshine the wealth and the splendor Of the richest on earth we have known; He’s the Architect true, and He’s building for you; God is still on the throne. (REPEAT CHORUS) VERSE 4: He is coming again, is the promise To disciples when He went away; In like manner as He has gone from you, You will see Him returning some day; Does His tarrying cause you to wonder, Does it seem He’s forgotten His own? His promise is true, He is coming for you; God is still on the throne. (REPEAT CHORUS)Home
