Psalm 47

Clap your hands, all ye people
Shout to God with joy-filled songs
Adonai Elyon is awesome
He is King o’er all earth’s throngs!

Gave us vict’ry o’er our enemy
Subdued nations ‘neath our feet
Gave us our own land forever
As our portion, oh how sweet!

At the sound of shouts and shofar
God ascends to His great throne
Sing your praises, sing your praises
With your voice His deeds make known.

God is king of all the nations
Kings of earth to Him bow down
Gather, princes and God’s people
The exalted Sov’reign crown.
