Psalm 97, Verses 1-9
The Lord reigns, let the earth be glad; let the distant shores rejoice.
Clouds and thick darkness surround Him; righteousness and justice are the foundation of His throne.
Fire goes before Him and consumes His foes on every side.
His lightning lights up the world; the earth sees and trembles.
The mountains melt like wax before the Lord, before the Lord of all the earth.
The heavens proclaim His righteousness, and all the peoples see His glory.
All who worship images are put to shame,
those who boast in idols–worship Him, all you gods!
Zion hears and rejoices and the villages of Judah are glad because of Your judgments, O Lord.
For You, O Lord, are the Most High over all the earth;
You are exalted far above all gods.
