The LORD's Dominion and Power

971 The Lord reigns , let the earth rejoice ; Let the many islands be glad . 2 Clouds and thick darkness surround Him; Righteousness and justice are the foundation of His throne . 3 Fire goes before Him And burns up His adversaries round about . 4 His lightnings lit up the world ; The earth saw and trembled . 5 The mountains melted like wax at the presence of the Lord , At the presence of the Lord of the whole earth . 6 The heavens declare His righteousness , And all the peoples have seen His glory . 7 Let all those be ashamed who serve graven images , Who boast themselves of idols ; Worship Him, all you gods .

8 Zion heard this and was glad , And the daughters of Judah have rejoiced Because of Your judgments , O Lord . 9 For You are the Lord Most High over all the earth ; You are exalted far above all gods . 10 Hate evil , you who love the Lord , Who preserves the souls of His godly ones ; He delivers them from the hand of the wicked . 11 Light is sown like seed for the righteous And gladness for the upright in heart . 12 Be glad in the Lord , you righteous ones , And give thanks to His holy name .
