The Supreme Ruler
1Clap your hands for joy, all peoples!
Praise God with loud songs!
2The Lord, the Most High, is to be feared;
he is a great king, ruling over all the world.
3He gave us victory over the peoples;
he made us rule over the nations.
4He chose for us the land where we live,
the proud possession of his people, whom he loves.
5God goes up to his throne.
There are shouts of joy and the blast of trumpets,
as the Lord goes up.
6Sing praise to God;
sing praise to our king!
7God is king over all the world;
praise him with songs!
8God sits on his sacred throne;
he rules over the nations.
9The rulers of the nations assemble
with the people of the God of Abraham.
More powerful than all armies is he;
he rules supreme.
