(based on Psalm 47)

One:     Clap your hands, all you peoples;
            shout to God with loud songs of joy.

All:       For the LORD, the Most High, is awesome,
            a great king over all the earth.

One:     God has gone up with a shout,
            the LORD with the sound of a trumpet.

All:       Sing praises to God, sing praises;
            sing praises to our King, sing praises.

One:     For God is the king of all the earth;
            sing praises with a psalm.

All:       God is king over the nations;
            God sits on his holy throne.

Ever-living God,
your eternal Christ once dwelt on earth,
   confined by time and space.
Give us faith to discern in every time and place
   the presence among us
   of him who is head over all thinks and fills all,
even Jesus Christ our ascended Lord.  Amen.
