The Lord is King

Psalm 96

for pilgrimage, Clare Priory, Suffolk

  • Refrain:
    The Lord is King, most high,
    above all the earth, alleluia!
    The Lord is King, most high,
    above all the earth, alleluia!
  1. The Lord is King,
    let the earth rejoice,
    let the nations be glad!
    God's throne is just and right,
    God's glorious kingdom is here!
  2. Let the skies proclaim,
    sing of justice
    for all the nations to see
    the glory of the Lord,
    the glory of the King!
  3. Indeed you are God,
    the Lord God, Most High,
    Lord God, Saviour and King,
    exulted above the earth.
    Your praise and glory we sing!
