Psalm 47

(from Day 9 Evening Prayer)

Omnes gentes, plaudite

  1. O CLAP your hands together, all ye people: O sing unto God with the voice of melody.
  2. For the Lord is high, and to be feared: he is the great King upon all the earth.
  3. He shall subdue the people under us: and the nations under our feet.
  4. He shall choose out an heritage for us: even the worship of Jacob, whom he loved.
  5. God is gone up with a merry noise: and the Lord with the sound of the trump.
  6. O sing praises, sing praises unto our God: O sing praises, sing praises unto our King.
  7. For God is the King of all the earth: sing ye praises with understanding.
  8. God reigneth over the heathen: God sitteth upon his holy seat.
  9. The princes of the people are joined unto the people of the God of Abraham: for God, which is very high exalted, doth defend the earth, as it were with a shield.
