The Lord is king; let the earth rejoice :
let the multitude of islands be glad.
Clouds and darkness are round about him :
righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.
Fire goes before him :
and burns up his enemies on every side.
His lightnings light the world :
the earth sees it and quakes.
The mountains melt like wax before his face :
from before the face of the Lord of all the earth.
The heavens have proclaimed his righteousness :
and all peoples have seen his glory.
They are ashamed,
all those who serve idols and glory in mere nothings :
all gods bow down before him.
Zion heard and was glad, and the daughters of Judah rejoiced :
because of your judgements, O God.
For you, Lord, are most high over all the earth :
you are exalted far above all gods.
The Lord loves those that hate evil :
the Lord guards the life of the faithful,
and delivers them from the hand of the ungodly.
Light dawns for the righteous :
and joy for the true of heart.
Rejoice in the Lord, you righteous :
and give thanks to his holy name.
