Refrain (Ascension Psalm text)
God mounts his throne to shouts of joy:
a blare of trumpets for the Lord.
you peoples, clap your hands, shout to God,
shout to God with cries of gladness.
For the Lord, the Most High, the awesome,
is the great king over all the earth.
mounts his throne amid shouts of joy;
the Lord, amid trumpet blasts.
Sing praise to God, to God, sing praise;
sing praise to our king, sing praise.
king of all the earth is God;
sing hymns of praise.
God reigns over all the nations,
God sits upon his holy throne.
