Psalm 97 through David, when the earth is established as His.

Tune: #146 Rejoice the Lord is King
music file from
1 The LORD reigns evermore.
Now let the earth rejoice.
The many distant shores
lift up a joyful noise
2 Clouds and darkness are around Him,
    His throne's righteousness and judgment.
3 A fire goes before Him
and burns His enemies. 
4 His lightnings lit the world;
the earth trembled to see. 
5 The hills melted like wax before
   the awesome coming of the LORD.
When the Lord comes again,
the Lord of all the earth,
6 declare shall the heavens
His righteousness and worth.
   All peoples shall see His glory. 
7 All serving idols shamed shall be.
All that of idols boast,
they shall all be undone.
All angels of our God
worship the Firstborn Son.
8 Zion heard and so glad was she.
   Judah's daughters rejoiced to see
because of Your judgments
to make Your people free,
9 for Thou LORD art Most High
o'er all earth's majesty.
   Thou art exalted very far
   above all angels forever.
10 All ye that love the LORD,
also hate wickedness.
His saints' souls He preserves
from the hand of lawless.
      He rescues us as He has shown.  
11  For the righteous there is light sown,
For the upright in heart,
for them is sown gladness.
12 Rejoice ye in the LORD,
who do God's righteousness.
       Give thanks for this. In remembrance,
       meditate on His holiness.
