The Lord, the Fair and Holy King
1The Lord is king.
Let the peoples shake with fear.
He sits between the gold creatures with wings.
Let the earth shake.
2The Lord in Jerusalem is great;
he is supreme over all the peoples.
3Let them praise your name;
it is great, holy and to be feared.
4The King is powerful and loves justice.
Lord, you made things fair;
you have done what is fair and right
for the people of Jacob.
5Praise the Lord our God,
and worship at the Temple, his footstool.
He is holy.
6Moses and Aaron were among his priests,
and Samuel was among his worshipers.
They called to the Lord,
and he answered them.
7He spoke to them from the pillar of cloud.
They kept the rules and laws he gave them.
8Lord our God, you answered them.
You showed them that you are a forgiving God,
but you punished them for their wrongs.
9Praise the Lord our God,
and worship at his holy mountain,
because the Lord our God is holy.
