Psalm 97. Dominus regnavit.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Contemporary - Ninteenth Day - Morning Prayer.
  1. The Lord is King; let the earth rejoice; *
    let the multitude of the isles be glad.
  2. Clouds and darkness are round about him, *
    righteousness and justice are the foundations of his throne.
  3. A fire goes before him *
    and burns up his enemies on every side.
  4. His lightnings light up the world; *
    the earth sees it and is afraid.
  5. The mountains melt like wax at the presence of the Lord, *
    at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.
  6. The heavens declare his righteousness, *
    and all the peoples see his glory.
  7. Confounded be all who worship carved images and delight in false gods! *
    Bow down before him, all you gods.
  8. Zion hears and is glad, and the cities of Judah rejoice, *
    because of your judgments, O Lord.
  9. For you are the Lord, most high over all the earth; *
    you are exalted far above all gods.
  10. The Lord loves those who hate evil; *
    he preserves the lives of his saints and delivers them from the hand of the wicked.
  11. Light has sprung up for the righteous, *
    and joyful gladness for those who are truehearted.
  12. Rejoice in the Lord, you righteous, *
    and give thanks to his holy Name.
