Psalm 47

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: Appears in 208 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 47 First Line: O for a shout of sacred joy Lyrics: O for a shout of sacred joy To God the sovereign King! Let every land their tongues employ, And hymns of triumph sing. Jesus our God ascends on high, His heav'nly guards around Attend him rising through the sky, With trumpets' joyful sound. While angels shout and praise their King, Let mortals learn their strains; Let all the earth his honors sing; O'er all the earth he reigns. Rehearse his praise with awe profound, Let knowledge lead the song, Nor mock him with a solemn sound Upon a thoughtless tongue. In Isr'el stood his ancient throne, He loved that chosen race; But now he calls the world his own, And heathens taste his grace. The British islands are the Lord's, There Abraham's God is known; While powers and princes, shields and swords, Submit before his throne.

My soul with comfort rich he fills, and every grief he gently stills: to God all praise and glory! 2 What God’s almighty power has made, in mercy he is keeping; by morning glow or evening shade his eye is never sleeping. And where he rules in kingly might, there all is just and all is right: to God all praise and glory! 3 We sought the Lord in our distress; O God, in mercy hear us. Our Savior saw our helplessness and came with peace to cheer us. For this we thank and praise the Lord, who is by one and all adored: to God all praise and glory! 4 Let all who name Christ’s holy name give God the praise and glory. Let all who know his power proclaim aloud the wondrous story. Cast every idol from its throne; the Lord is God, and he alone: to God all praise and glory!
