1. The LORD reigns; let the earth rejoice; let the many coastlands be glad!

2. Clouds and thick darkness are round about 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 lighten the world; the earth sees and trembles.

5. The mountains melt like wax before the LORD, before the Lord of all the earth.

6. The heavens proclaim his righteousness; and all the peoples behold his glory.

7. All worshipers of images are put to shame, who make their boast in worthless idols; all gods bow down before him.

8. Zion hears and is glad, and the daughters of Judah rejoice, because of thy judgments, O God.

9. For thou, O LORD, art most high over all the earth; thou art exalted far above all gods.

10. The LORD loves those who hate evil; he preserves the lives of his saints; he delivers them from the hand of the wicked.

11. Light dawns for the righteous, and joy for the upright in heart.

12. Rejoice in the LORD, O you righteous, and give thanks to his holy name!
