1Awurade yɛ ɔhene! Asase, ma w’ani nnye! Nsupɔw a ɛwɔ po mu nyinaa, monsɛpɛw mo ho!

Omununkum ne esum atwa ne ho ahyia; odi hene atɛntrenee ne nokware mu. Ogya di n’anim a ɛrehyew n’atamfo a wɔatwa ne ho ahyia no. N’anyinam hyerɛn wiase nyinaa; asase hu ma ne ho popo. Mmepɔw nan te sɛ nku wɔ Awurade anim, Awurade a asase nyinaa yɛ ne de anim. Ɔsorofo da ne trenee adi, na aman nyinaa hu n’anuonyam.

Psalm 97

Psalm 97

The Lord reigns, let the earth be glad;
    let the distant shores rejoice.
Clouds and thick darkness surround him;
    righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.
Fire goes before him
    and consumes his foes on every side.
His lightning lights up the world;
    the earth sees and trembles.
The mountains melt like wax before the Lord,
    before the Lord of all the earth.
The heavens proclaim his righteousness,
    and all peoples see his glory.

All who worship images are put to shame,
    those who boast in idols –
    worship him, all you gods!

Zion hears and rejoices
    and the villages of Judah are glad
    because of your judgments, Lord.
For you, Lord, are the Most High over all the earth;
    you are exalted far above all gods.
10 Let 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.
11 Light shines[a] on the righteous
    and joy on the upright in heart.
12 Rejoice in the Lord, you who are righteous,
    and praise his holy name.
