The King over All the Earth
For the Pure and Shining One by the prophetic singers of Korah’s clan
A poetic song
1Go ahead and celebrate!
Come on and clap your hands, everyone!
Shout to God with the raucous sounds of joy!
2The Lord God Most High is astonishing, awesome beyond words!
He’s the formidable and powerful King over all the earth.
3He’s the one who conquered the nations before us
and placed them all under our feet.
4He’s marked out our inheritance ahead of time,
putting us in the front of the line, honoring Jacob, the one he loves. # 47:4 Or “the pride of Jacob.” The Septuagint reads “the beauty of Jacob.”
Pause in his presence
5God arises with the earsplitting shout of his people!
God goes up with a trumpet blast!
6Sing and celebrate! Sing some more, celebrate some more!
Sing your highest song of praise to our King!
7For God is the triumphant King; all the powers of the earth are his.
So sing your celebration songs of highest praise
to the glorious Enlightened One!
8Our God reigns over every nation.
He reigns on his holy throne over all.
9All the nobles and princes,
the loving servants of the God of Abraham,
they all gather to worship.
Every warrior’s shield is now lowered
as surrendered trophies before this King.
He has taken his throne, high and lofty, exalted over all!
