Psalm 47

From Scottish Metrical Psalms 1650

Meter: 8,6,8,6

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
       chuse 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.
