47. O clap your hands, all nations, cry

Author: David G Preston

O clap your hands, all nations, cry
with joy to God, declare his worth:
how awesome is the Lord most High,
the mighty King of all the earth!

2. Beneath us he has cast our foes
and raised us up with him above;
a glorious heritage he chose
for us, the people of his love.

3. The Lord’s ascended! Hear the cry!
The skies with clarion trumpets ring!
Sing praise, sing praise to God on high,
sing praise to our victorious King!

4. For all the earth is God’s domain:
to him our noblest praise be given!
The King who over all must reign
is seated on his throne in heaven.

5. The nations’ princes join the throng
of those who Abraham’s God adore,
for this world’s powers to him belong:
our God, supreme for evermore!
