Lord Of All Lands

Tune: Ruth

('Summer suns are glowing')

Psalm 47


Clap your hands, all people

Shout unto God, call

Upon Him, with the voice

Of triumph rejoice

For the LORD most high He

Awesome ever be

Great King over all earth

Give to Him His worth


He shall people subdue

Under us anew

Put nations 'neath our feet

From His judgement seat

He shall choose for us  sure

Inheritance, store

Of blessings excellent

They to us be sent


God is gone up with shout

Victory no doubt

Is His, and trumpet sound

Does here clear redound

Sing praises to God, sing

He King o'er each thing

In heaven or on earth

makes songs, joyful mirth


Sing with understanding

Him your offerings bring

He o'er the heathen reigns

Truly with no feigns

Sits upon His throne, yes

Of His holiness

Let all Him exalt, see

He LORD ever be

    Nicely done once again, Steve. The metre switch up always gets me!
    No sun here right now sadly. It's 4:00 in the morning you see!
    Haven't slept yet, oh well.

      Thanks N. Ooh, have a song at 4:00am. Join the bird-song chorus. But don't shoot them birds if they wake you up. Aww! How you mean about the metre? lol.
