Psalm 47 J.H.
Words: Sternhold and Hopkins, The Whole Book of Psalms Collected into English Metre
1 Ye people all with one accord clap hands, shout, and rejoice, Be glad, and sing unto the Lord with sweet and pleasant voice; 2 For high the Lord and dreadful is, his wonders manifold, A mighty King he is likewise in all the earth extolled. 3 The people shall he make to be unto our bondage thrall, And underneath our feet shall he the nations make to fall: 4 For us the heritage he chose. which we possess alone, The excellency of Jacob his well-beloved one. 5 Our God ascended up on high with joy and pleasant noise; The Lord goes up above the sky with trumpet's royal voice. 6 Sing praises to our God, sing praise, sing praises to our King; For God is King of all the earth, all skilful praises sing. 7 God o'er the heathen reigns, and sits upon his holy throne; The princes of the people have them joineed every one. 8 To Abraham's people: for our God who is exalted high, As with a buckler doth defend the earth continually.
