1 The Lord reigneth: let the earth rejoice: let
the multitude of the Isles be glad.
2 Clouds and darkness are round about him:
righteousness and judgment are the
foundation of his throne.
3 There shall go a fire before him, and burn
up his enemies round about.
4 His lightnings gave light unto the world: the
earth saw it and was afraid.
5 The mountains melted like wax at the presence
of the Lord, at the presence of the Lord of the whole
6 The heavens declare his righteousness, and all
the people see his glory.
7 Confounded be all they that serve graven
images, and that glory in idols: worship him all ye
8 Zion heard of it, and was glad: and the daughters
of Judah rejoiced, because of thy judgments, O Lord.
9 For thou, Lord, art most High above all the
earth: thou art much exalted above all gods.
10 Ye that love the Lord, hate evil: he preserveth
the souls of his Saints: he will deliver them from the
hand of the wicked.
11 Light is sown for the righteous, and joy for
the upright in heart.
12 Rejoice ye righteous in the Lord, and give thanks
for his holy remembrance.
