JESUS Reigns; Let The Earth Be Glad

Psalm 96 NIV

1Sing To The LORD a new song;
Sing To The LORD, all the earth.
2Sing To The LORD, Praise HIS Name;
Proclaim HIS Salvation day after day.
3Declare HIS Glory among the nations,
HIS Marvelous Deeds among all peoples.
4For Great is The LORD and Most Worthy of Praise;
HE Is To Be Feared above all gods.
5For all the gods of the nations are idols,
but The LORD Made the heavens.
6Splendor and Majesty Are Before HIM;
Strength and Glory Are In HIS Sanctuary.
7Ascribe To The LORD, all you families of nations,
Ascribe To The LORD Glory and Strength.
8Ascribe To The LORD The Glory Due HIS Name;
Bring an offering and come into HIS Courts.
9Worship The LORD in the Splendor of HIS Holiness;
Tremble Before HIM, all the earth.

10Say among the nations, “The LORD Reigns.”
The world is firmly established, it cannot be moved;
HE Will Judge the peoples with equity.
11Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad;
let the sea resound, and all that is in it.
12Let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them;
let all the trees of the forest sing for joy.
13Let all creation rejoice Before The LORD, for HE Comes,
HE Comes to Judge the earth.
HE Will Judge the world In Righteousness
and the peoples In HIS Faithfulness.

Psalm 97 NIV

1The LORD Reigns, Let the earth be glad;

Let the distant shores rejoice.

2Clouds and thick darkness surround HIM;
Righteousness and Justice are the Foundation of HIM Throne.
3Fire Goes Before HIM
and Consumes HIS foes on every side.
4HIS Lightning Lights up the world;
the earth sees and trembles.
5The mountains melt like wax Before The LORD,
Before The LORD of all the earth.

6The heavens proclaim HIS Righteousness,
and all peoples see HIS Glory.

7All who worship images are put to shame,
those who boast in idols—
Worship HIM, all you gods!
8Zion hears and rejoices
and the villages of Judah are glad
because of YOUR Judgments, LORD.
9For YOU, LORD, Are The MOST HIGH Over all the earth;
YOU Are Exalted far above all gods.
10Let those who love The LORD hate evil,
for HE Guards the lives of HIS faithful ones
and Delivers them from the hand of the wicked.
11Light shines on the righteous
and joy on the upright in heart.

12Rejoice In The LORD, you who are 

righteous, and Praise HIS Holy Name.

Psalm 97

This Psalm dwells upon the same subject, and is set to the same tune, with the foregoing Psalm 96; that CHRIST Is The Alpha and The Omega.  They are both penned, and are both to be sung to HIS Honor and Glory; and we make melody with our hearts To The LORD JESUS.

HE Reigns, to the joy of all mankind (v. 1); and HIS Government Speaks,

I. Terror to HIS enemies; for HE Is the Prince of Inflexible Justice and Irresistible Power (v. 2-7).

II. Comfort to HIS children and loyal subjects, arising from HIS Sovereign Dominion, the Care HE Takes of HIS people and the Provision HE Makes For them (v. 8-12).

In singing this Psalm we must be affected with the Glory of The Exalted REDEEMER JESUS CHRIST, Must Dread the lot of HIS enemies, and think ourselves happy if we are of those who "kiss The SON
