Psalm 99

CM (86.86)
Julie Tennent

1The Lord God reigns – let nations shake!
He is with might arraigned.
Enthroned between the cherubim –
Earth, tremble at His reign.

2The Lord is great in Zion, and
all nations He does own;
3Let nations praise Your awesome name;
He’s holy – He alone.

4The King is mighty, and loves right;
Established equity;
In Jacob, You have done what’s right
and justice You decree.

5Exalt the Lord, the Lord our God
and worship at His throne;
Come worship at His footstool, for
He’s holy – He alone.

6Moses and Aaron were His priests
And Samu’l called aloud;
They called on Him – He answered them,
7Spoke to them from the cloud.

They kept His statutes and decrees;
8You were a God who heeds;
Were a forgiving God to them,
Yet punished evil deeds.

9Exalt the Lord, the Lord our God
and worship at His throne;
Come worship at His holy hill
He’s holy – He alone.
Timothy Tennent

1The Lord God reigns; let all the nations shake!
Between the cherubim, He sits enthroned;
Great is our God; let all the peoples quake!
God sits on high; all rulers are dethroned. 

2Great is the Lord; in Zion He does reign;
He is exalted; nations in His train!
3Let them all praise Your great and awesome name;
Holy is He – the world is His domain.

4Our King is just, His people all proclaim;
He has established equity on earth;
Justice He loves, and righteousness maintains;
Exalt the Lord, and tell His holy worth!

5In Jacob He has done what’s just and right;
Exalt the Lord, and worship at His feet;
He is the Lord; We praise His glorious might;
Holy is He – His praise we all repeat!

6Moses and Aaron were His holy priests;
Samuel was with all those who call His name;
They honored Him with sacrifice and feasts;
They called upon the Lord – His answer came.

7He spoke to them from pillar and from cloud;
They kept His laws which came from His own hand;
All His decrees, they kept as they had vowed;
8He answered them, and gave the promised land.

You were to Isr’el a forgiving God,
Though they were judged and punished for their sin;
9Exalt the Lord; on His mount be adored!
Holy is He – His praise will never end!
