The Ascension of Our Lord




Psalm 47:1–9


1Clap your hands, all | peoples!*

Shout to God with loud | songs of joy!

2For the LORD, the Most High, is | to be feared,*

a great king over | all the earth.

3He subdued peoples | under us,*

and nations un- | der our feet.

4He chose our heritage | for us,*

the pride of Jacob | whom he loves.

5God has gone up | with a shout,*

the LORD with the sound of a | trumpet.

6Sing praises to God, sing | praises!*

Sing praises to our King, sing | praises!

7For God is the King of | all the earth;*

sing praises | with a psalm!

8God reigns over the | nations;*

God sits on his | holy throne.

9The princes of the peoples gather

as the people of the God of | Abraham.*

For the shields of the earth belong to God;

he is highly ex- | alted!
