Our Lord Is King

99 Our Lord, you are King!
    You rule from your throne
above the winged creatures,[a]
    as people tremble
    and the earth shakes.
You are praised in Zion,
    and you control all nations.
Only you are God!
    And your power alone,
    so great and fearsome,
    is worthy of praise.
You are our mighty King,[b]
    a lover of fairness,
    who sees that justice is done
    everywhere in Israel.
Our Lord and our God,
    we praise you
    and kneel down to worship you,
    the God of holiness!

Moses and Aaron were two
    of your priests.
Samuel was also one of those
    who prayed in your name,
    and you, our Lord,
    answered their prayers.
You spoke to them
from a thick cloud,
    and they obeyed your laws.

Our Lord and our God,
you answered their prayers
    and forgave their sins,
    but when they did wrong,
    you punished them.
We praise you, Lord God,
    and we worship you
at your sacred mountain.
    Only you are God!
