Psalm 47

Words: The Scottish Psalter

C. M.

To the chief Musician,
A Psalm for the sons of Korah.
   1  All people, clap your hands; to God
         with voice of triumph shout:
   2  For dreadful is the Lord most high,
         great King the earth throughout.
   3  The heathen people under us
         he surely shall subdue;
      And he shall make the nations
         under our feet to bow.
   4  The lot of our inheritance
         choose out for us shall he,
      Of Jacob, whom he loved well,
         ev'n the excellency.
   5  God is with shouts gone up, the Lord
         with trumpets sounding high.
   6  Sing praise to God, sing praise, sing praise,
         praise to our King sing ye.
   7  For God is King of all the earth;
         with knowledge praise express.
   8  God rules the nations: God sits on
         his throne of holiness.
   9  The princes of the people are
         assembled willingly;
      Ev'n of the God of Abraham
         they who the people be.

      For why? the shields that do defend
         the earth are only his:
      They to the Lord belong; yea, he
         exalted greatly is.
