Omnes gentes, plaudite
O clap your hands together, all ye people *
O sing unto God with the voice of melody.
For the Lord is high, and to be feared *
he is the great King upon all the earth.
He shall subdue the people under us *
and the nations under our feet.
He shall choose out an heritage for us *
even the worship of Jacob, whom he loved.
God is gone up with a merry noise *
and the Lord with the sound of the trump.
O sing praises, sing praises unto our God *
O sing praises, sing praises unto our King.
For God is the King of all the earth *
sing ye praises with understanding.
God reigneth over the heathen *
God sitteth upon his holy seat.
The princes of the people are joined unto the people of the God of Abraham *
for God, which is very high exalted, doth defend the earth, as it were with a shield.
Great is the Lord, and highly to be praised *
in the city of our God, even upon his holy hill.
The hill of Sion is a fair place, and the joy of the whole earth *
upon the north-side lieth the city of the great King; God is well known in her palaces as a sure refuge.
For lo, the kings of the earth *
are gathered, and gone by together.
They marvelled to see such things *
they were astonished, and suddenly cast down.
Fear came there upon them, and sorrow *
as upon a woman in her travail.
Thou shalt break the ships of the sea *
through the east-wind.
Like as we have heard, so have we seen in the city of the Lord of hosts, in the city of our God *
God upholdeth the same for ever.
We wait for thy loving-kindness, O God *
in the midst of thy temple.
O God, according to thy Name, so is thy praise unto the world’s end *
thy right hand is full of righteousness.
Let the mount Sion rejoice, and the daughters of Judah be glad *
because of thy judgements.
Walk about Sion, and go round about her *
and tell the towers thereof.
Mark well her bulwarks, set up her houses *
that ye may tell them that come after.
For this God is our God for ever and ever *
he shall be our guide unto death.
