Psalm 097

1    God reigneth, let the earth be glad,

          and isles rejoice each one.

2    Dark clouds him compass; and in right

          with 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;

     Ev’n at the presence of the Lord

          of all the earth, I say.

6    The heav’ns 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    Sion did hear, and joyful was,

          glad Judah’s daughters were;

     They much rejoic’d, 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 all those that be righteous

          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.

Ekklesia Muskogee is a reformed baptist church that gathers for worship in Muskogee, Oklahoma. We confess the 1689 second London baptist confession of faith. We affirm the five solas of the Reformation as well as the doctrines of grace (otherwise known as the five points of Calvinism), and each of our pastors would not be ashamed to be called a Calvinist. We are a church led by elders, of which there is a plurality (also called pastors and overseers in the Scriptures). Our mission is to make disciples, love cities, and plant churches.
