Book of Praise Anglo Genevan Psalter 

A Psalm of David.

Geneva, 1562

1. The LORD our God is King!
Let earth rejoice and sing.
Let shores of distant nations
resound with jubilation.
Clouds dark with mystery
enfold his majesty.
He firmly based his throne
on righteousness alone.
Our glorious King is he.

2. Fire that consumes his foes
fiercely before him goes.
His thunderbolts are frightening:
the world’s lit up with lightning.
Earth trembles at the sight.
The mountains, great in height,
like wax all melt away
in terror and dismay
when God reveals his might.

3. The heavens everywhere
his righteousness declare.
The world in awe and wonder
beholds his holy splendour.
But God puts those to shame
who do not fear his name,
who in their idols boast,
and all their worthless host.
You gods, all worship him!

4. Now Zion lifts her voice;
all Judah’s towns rejoice.
They heard the proclamation
of glorious vindication.
LORD, none with you compare,
for God Most High you are.
The earth is yours alone;
exalted is your throne,
supreme for evermore.

5. Let evil be abhorred
by those who love the LORD.
The faithful he will ever
from wicked men deliver.
Light dawns for the upright;
in joy they will delight.
You saints, rejoice in him
and praise his holy name.
Extol his glorious might!

Psalm 97
A Psalm of David.

The Lord Reigns

97 The LORD reigns, let the earth rejoice;

let the many coastlands be glad!

2 Clouds and thick darkness are all around him;

righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.

3 Fire goes before him

and burns up his adversaries all around.

4 His lightnings light up the world;

the earth sees and trembles.

5 The mountains melt like wax before the LORD,

before the Lord of all the earth.

6 The heavens proclaim his righteousness,

and all the peoples see his glory.

7 All worshipers of images are put to shame,

who make their boast in worthless idols;

worship him, all you gods!

8 Zion hears and is glad,

and the daughters of Judah rejoice,

because of your judgments, O LORD.

9 For you, O LORD, are most high over all the earth;

you are exalted far above all gods.

10 O you who love the LORD, hate evil!

He preserves the lives of his saints;

he delivers them from the hand of the wicked.

11 Light vis sown for the righteous,

and joy for the upright in heart.

12 Rejoice in the LORD, O you righteous,

and give thanks to his holy name!
