God goes up with shouts of joy

Psalm 46

  • Refrain:
    God goes up with shouts of joy,
    the Lord goes up with trumpet blast.
  1. All you peoples clap your hands,
    cry to God with shouts of joy!
    For the Lord, the Most High,
    we must fear, great king o'er all the earth.
  2. God goes up with shouts of joy;
    The Lord goes up with trumpet blast.
    Sing praise for God, sing praise,
    sing praise to God our King.
  3. God is King of all the earth.
    Sing praise with all your heart.
    The Lord is King over all nations,
    God reigns upon the throne.
