Psalm 99

God rules;
Empires are unstable.
God’s throne is out of human reach;
So the nations cower.
God’s capital city, Zion,
Outlasts all the other nations,
And they ought to be thankful for that:
God is way better!

King of Justice,
You enforce the laws of equality.
You make your people do what’s right.
That’s why we say you’re so great!
That’s why we bow before you!
You’re way better.

Moses and Aaron were your servants.
Samuel called on you, among others.
They shouted to you for help –
And God responded, speaking out of the haze,
And they followed directions, verbatim,
As God gave them.

God, you answered them.
You forgave them,
Even as you righted their wrongs.
That’s why we say you’re so great!
That’s why we bow before you!
Because you’re way better.
