|The LORD reigns; let the earth rejoice; |
let the many coastlands be glad!
|The Lord is King!. Psalm 97(v96)|
|Clouds and thick darkness are round about him; |
righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.
|Fire goes before him, |
and burns up his adversaries round about.
|His lightnings lighten the world; |
the earth sees and trembles.
|The mountains melt like wax before the LORD, |
before the Lord of all the earth.
|The heavens proclaim his righteousness; |
and all the peoples behold his glory.
|All worshipers of images are put to shame, who make their boast in worthless idols; |
all gods bow down before him.
|Zion hears and is glad, and the daughters of Judah rejoice, |
because of thy judgments, O God.
|For thou, O LORD, art most high over all the earth; |
thou art exalted far above all gods.
|The LORD loves those who hate evil; |
he preserves the lives of his saints;
he delivers them from the hand of the wicked.
|Light dawns for the righteous, |
and joy for the upright in heart.
|Rejoice in the Lord, O you righteous,|
and give thanks to his holy name!
