99 1God rules. On your toes, everybody! He rules from his angel throne—take notice! 2God looms majestic in Zion, He towers in splendor over all the big names. 3Great and terrible your beauty: let everyone praise you! Holy. Yes, holy. 4Strong King, lover of justice, You laid things out fair and square; You set down the foundations in Jacob, Foundation stones of just and right ways. 5Honor God, our God; worship his rule! Holy. Yes, holy. 6Moses and Aaron were his priests, Samuel among those who prayed to him. They prayed to God and he answered them; 7He spoke from the pillar of cloud. And they did what he said; they kept the law he gave them. 8And then God, our God, answered them (But you were never soft on their sins). 9Lift high God, our God; worship at his holy mountain. Holy. Yes, holy is God our God.
