For the Lord Most High(A) is awesome,(B)
    the great King(C) over all the earth.
He subdued(D) nations under us,
    peoples under our feet.
He chose our inheritance(E) for us,
    the pride of Jacob,(F) whom he loved.[a]

God has ascended(G) amid shouts of joy,(H)
    the Lord amid the sounding of trumpets.(I)
Sing praises(J) to God, sing praises;
    sing praises to our King, sing praises.
For God is the King of all the earth;(K)
    sing to him a psalm(L) of praise.

God reigns(M) over the nations;
    God is seated on his holy throne.(N)
The nobles of the nations assemble
    as the people of the God of Abraham,
for the kings[b] of the earth belong to God;(O)
    he is greatly exalted.(P)
