Psalm 29 for Western Australia
A Psalm of David
1Acknowledge the Lord, you heavenly beings,
acknowledge the Lord’s majesty and power!
2 Acknowledge the majesty of the Lord’s reputation!
Worship the Lord in holy attire!
3 The Lord’s shout is heard over the water;
the majestic God thunders,
the Lord appears over the surging water.
4 The Lord’s shout is powerful,
the Lord’s shout is majestic.
5 The Lord’s shout breaks the jarrah trees,
the Lord shatters the karris of Pemberton.
6 He makes Esperance skip like a calf
and Northam like an emu chick.
7 The Lord’s shout strikes with flaming fire.
8 The Lord’s shout shakes the desert,
the Lord shakes the Great Sandy Desert.
9 The Lord’s shout bends the large trees
and strips the leaves from the forests.
Everyone in his temple says, “Majestic!”
10 The Lord sits enthroned over the engulfing waters,
the Lord sits enthroned as the eternal king.
11 The Lord gives his people strength;
the Lord grants his people security.
