God Rules Over All

97 A psalm of David when his kingdom was established[a]
Yahweh now reigns as King! Let everyone rejoice!
His rule extends everywhere, even to distant lands,
and the islands of the sea, let them all be glad.
Clouds both dark and mysterious now surround him.[b]
His throne of glory rests upon
a foundation of righteousness and justice.
All around him burns a blazing glory-fire consuming all his foes.
