Lyrics (Psalm 97:1-2, 5-6, 9):
Response: The Lord is king, the most high over all the earth.
The Lord is king! Let the earth rejoice;
let the many coastlands be glad!
Clouds and thick darkness are all around him;
righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne. Response
The mountains melt like wax before the Lord,
before the Lord of all the earth.
The heavens proclaim his righteousness;
and all the peoples behold his glory. Response
You, O LORD, are the Most High over all the earth,
exalted far above all gods.
