The Supreme Ruler
1 Clap your hands for joy, all peoples!
Praise God with loud songs!
2 The Lord, the Most High, is to be feared;
he is a great king, ruling over all the world.
3 He gave us victory over the peoples;
he made us rule over the nations.
4 He chose for us the land where we live,
the proud possession of his people, whom he loves.

5 God goes up to his throne.
There are shouts of joy and the blast of trumpets,
as the Lord goes up.
6 Sing praise to God;
sing praise to our king!
7 God is king over all the world;
praise him with songs!

8 God sits on his sacred throne;
he rules over the nations.
9 The rulers of the nations assemble
with the people of the God of Abraham.
More powerful than all armies is he;
he rules supreme.
