Praise to the Lord for His Fidelity to Israel.

(A)The Lord reigns, let the peoples tremble;
He (a)(B)is enthroned above the cherubim, let the earth shake!
The Lord (b)is (C)great in Zion,
And He is (D)exalted above all the peoples.
Let them praise Your (E)great and awesome name;
(F)Holy is (c)He.
The (d)strength of the King (G)loves (e)justice;
You have established (f)(H)equity;
You have (I)executed (g)justice and righteousness in Jacob.
(h)(J)Exalt the Lord our God
And (K)worship at His footstool;
(L)Holy is He.
(M)Moses and Aaron were among His (N)priests,
And (O)Samuel was among those who (P)called on His name;
They (Q)called upon the Lord and He answered them.
He (R)spoke to them in the pillar of cloud;
They (S)kept His testimonies
And the statute that He gave them.
O Lord our God, You (T)answered them;
You were a (U)forgiving God to them,
And yet an (V)avenger of their evil deeds.
Exalt the Lord our God
And worship at His holy hill,
For holy is the Lord our God.
