Mission of St. Clare logo Psalm 97 Dominus regnavit

The Lord is king.

The earth may be glad thereof;
yea, the multitude of the isles may be glad thereof.

Clouds and darkness are round about him;
righteousness and judgement are the habitation of his seat.

There shall go a fire before him, and burn up his enemies on every side.

His lightnings gave shine unto the world;
the earth saw it, and was afraid.

The hills melted like wax at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.

The heavens have declared his righteousness, and all the people have seen his glory.

Confounded be all they that worship carved images, and that delight in vain gods;
worship him, all ye gods.

Sion heard of it, and rejoiced;
and the daughters of Judah were glad, because of thy judgements, O Lord.

For thou, Lord, art higher than all that are in the earth;
thou art exalted far above all gods.

O ye that love the Lord, see that ye hate the thing which is evil.

The Lord preserveth the souls of his saints;
he shall deliver them from the hand of the ungodly.

There is sprung up a light for the righteous, and joyful gladness for such as are true-hearted.

Rejoice in the Lord, ye righteous, and give thanks for a remembrance of his holiness.
