Melody from Tans'ur's Harmony of Zion, 1734 (later form of rhythm)
1 GOD reigneth, let the earth be glad,
And isles rejoice each one.
2 Dark clouds him compass; and in right
And judgment dwells his throne.
3 Fire goes before him, and his foes
It burns up round about:
4 His lightnings lighten did the world;
Earth saw, and shook throughout.
5 Hills at the presence of the Lord,
Like wax, did melt away;
Even at the presence of the Lord
Of all the earth, I say.
6 The heavens declare his righteousness,
All men his glory see.
7 All who serve graven images,
Confounded let them be.
Who do of idols boast themselves,
Let shame upon them fall:
Ye that are called gods, see that
Ye do him worship all.
8 Zion did hear, and joyful was,
Glad Judah's daughters were;
They much rejoiced, O Lord, because
Thy judgments did appear.
9 For thou, O Lord, art high above
All things on earth that are;
Above all other gods thou art
Exalted very far.
10 Hate ill, all ye that love the Lord:
His saints' souls keepeth he;
And from the hands of wicked men
He sets them safe and free.
11 For every one that righteous is
Sown is a joyful light,
And gladness sown is for all those
That are in heart upright.
12 Ye righteous, in the Lord rejoice;
Express your thankfulness,
When ye into your memory
Do call his holiness.
