PSALM 47
METER:  LMD (88 88 D) or LM (88 88)
SUGGESTED TUNE:  HE LEADETH ME

1.  O clap your hands, you peo-ples all!
    With joy-ful songs shout to our God!
    The might-y God is to be feared,
    A sov-ereign great o'er all the earth.
    O'er peo-ples God gave vic-to-ry,
    God made us o'er the na-tions rule,
    God chose our her-i-tage for us,
    The pride of Ja-cob whom God loves.
2.  God has gone up to take the throne
    With shouts of joy and trum-pet call.
    Sing praise to God, who is our king.
    Sing praise to earth's king with a psalm.
    God rules the na-tions from his throne.
    As God's own folk the rul-ers come.
    The shields of earth be-long to God;
    God rules su-preme o'er all the earth.
