PSALM 99
METER:  88 88 88
SUGGESTED TUNE:  ST. CATHERINE
This is the meter for such hymns as "Faith of Our Fathers"

1.  The Lord reigns; let the peo-ples quake.
    He is on cher-u-bim en-throned.
    Let earth quake!  God is great in Zi'n,
    Ex-alt-ed o-ver na-tions all.
    Let all the world your maj-es-ty
    And great-ness praise.  Ho-ly is he!
2.  O might-y King, who just-ice loves,
    You have es-tab-lished e-qui-ty;
    Just-ice and right-eous-ness you've made
    In Is-ra-el to come to pass.
    Ex-tol the Lord God; wor-ship him
    At his foot-stool.  Ho-ly is he!
3.  Mo-ses and Aa-ron both were priests,
    Sam-u-el al-so called on him.
    They cried to God, who spoke to them,
    An-swer-ing from the pil-lared cloud;
    They kept his test-i-mon-ies all,
    And the stat-utes that he gave them.
4.  O Lord God, you did an-swer them;
    You for-gave them, for you are God,
    But pun-ished them for all their sins.
    Ex-tol the Lord, who is our God;
    Wor-ship him at his ho-ly hill,
    For ho-ly is the Lord our God!
