God in the Thunderstorm
A psalm of David.
1Praise the Lord, you angels;
praise the Lord’s glory and power.
2Praise the Lord for the glory of his name;
worship the Lord because he is holy.
3The Lord’s voice is heard over the sea.
The glorious God thunders;
the Lord thunders over the ocean.
4The Lord’s voice is powerful;
the Lord’s voice is majestic.
5The Lord’s voice breaks the trees;
the Lord breaks the cedars of Lebanon.
6He makes the land of Lebanon dance like a calf
and Mount Hermon jump like a baby bull.
7The Lord’s voice makes the lightning flash.
8The Lord’s voice shakes the desert;
the Lord shakes the Desert of Kadesh.
9The Lord’s voice shakes the oaks
and strips the leaves off the trees.
In his Temple everyone says, “Glory to God!”
10The Lord controls the flood.
The Lord will be King forever.
11The Lord gives strength to his people;
the Lord blesses his people with peace.
