The Lord Reigns

Psalm 97

1 The LORD a reigns;
Let the earth rejoice;
Let the multitude of 1 isles be glad!
2 b Clouds and darkness surround Him;
c Righteousness and justice are the foundation of His throne.
3 d A fire goes before Him,
And burns up His enemies round about.
4 e His lightnings light the world;
The earth sees and trembles.
5 f The mountains melt like wax at the presence of the LORD,
At the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.

6 g The heavens declare His righteousness,
And all the peoples see His glory.
7 h Let all be put to shame who serve carved images,
Who boast of idols.
i 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, LORD, are j most high above all the earth;
k You are exalted far above all gods.

10 You who love the LORD, l hate evil!
m He preserves the souls of His saints;
n He delivers them out of the hand of the wicked.
11 o Light is sown for the righteous,
And gladness for the upright in heart.
12 p Rejoice in the LORD, you righteous,
q And give thanks 2 at the remembrance of 3 His holy name.
