Lyrics: Psalm 47

Omnes gentes, plaudite manibus; jubilate Deo in voce exsultationis:
quoniam Dominus excelsus, terribilis, rex magnus super omnem terram.
Subjecit populos nobis, et gentes sub pedibus nostris.
Elegit nobis haereditatem suam: speciem Jacob quam dilexit.
Ascendit Deus in jubilo, et Dominus in voce tubae.
Psallite Deo nostro, psallite: psallite regi nostro, psallite: quoniam rex omnis terrae Deus, psallite sapienter.
Regnabit Deus super gentes: Deus sedet super sedem sanctam suam.
Principes populorum congregati sunt cum Deo Abraham,
quoniam dii fortes terrae vehementer elevati sunt.

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 trumpet.
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.
