1 The Lord is king: let the earth rejoice; ♦︎
let the multitude of the isles be glad.
2 Clouds and darkness are round about him; ♦︎
righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.
3 Fire goes before him ♦︎
and burns up his enemies on every side.
4 His lightnings lit up the world; ♦︎
the earth saw it and trembled.
5 The mountains melted like wax at the presence of the Lord, ♦︎
at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.
6 The heavens declared his righteousness, ♦︎
and all the peoples have seen his glory.
7 Confounded be all who worship carved images
and delight in mere idols. ♦︎
Bow down before him, all you gods.
8 Zion heard and was glad, and the daughters of Judah rejoiced, ♦︎
because of your judgements, O Lord.
9 For you, Lord, are most high over all the earth; ♦︎
you are exalted far above all gods.
10 The Lord loves those who hate evil; ♦︎
he preserves the lives of his faithful
and delivers them from the hand of the wicked.
11 Light has sprung up for the righteous ♦︎
and joy for the true of heart.
12 Rejoice in the Lord, you righteous, ♦︎
and give thanks to his holy name.
1 Sing to the Lord a new song, ♦︎
for he has done marvellous things.
2 His own right hand and his holy arm ♦︎
have won for him the victory.
3 The Lord has made known his salvation; ♦︎
his deliverance has he openly shown in the sight of the nations.
4 He has remembered his mercy and faithfulness
towards the house of Israel, ♦︎
and all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.
5 Sound praises to the Lord, all the earth; ♦︎
break into singing and make music.
6 Make music to the Lord with the lyre, ♦︎
with the lyre and the voice of melody.
7 With trumpets and the sound of the horn ♦︎
sound praises before the Lord, the King.
8 Let the sea thunder and all that fills it, ♦︎
the world and all that dwell upon it.
9 Let the rivers clap their hands ♦︎
and let the hills ring out together before the Lord,
for he comes to judge the earth.
10 In righteousness shall he judge the world ♦︎
and the peoples with equity.
1 O be joyful in the Lord, all the earth; ♦︎
serve the Lord with gladness
and come before his presence with a song.
2 Know that the Lord is God; ♦︎
it is he that has made us and we are his;
we are his people and the sheep of his pasture.
3 Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise; ♦︎
give thanks to him and bless his name.
4 For the Lord is gracious; his steadfast love is everlasting, ♦︎
and his faithfulness endures from generation to generation.
