Psalm 47

Joy F. Patterson, 1990 ©

  1. Peoples, clap your hands! Shout to God with joy!
    King of all the earth is the Lord Most High;
    All humanity stands in awe of God.
    With a mighty hand God brings nations low,
    And beneath our feet casts down every foe;
    Our inheritance comes from God the Lord.
  2. God ascends the throne with a joyful cry,
    And with trumpet sound has gone up on high;
    Sing your praise to God, sing with joyful voice!
    Rulers, peoples, now join to serve the Lord,
    For earth’s mighty ones all belong to God,
    Who exalted reigns; now with Psalm s rejoice!
