O clap your hands (Psalm 47:1-2,5-8) – Ralph Vaughan Williams

Vaughan Williams circa 1920

Vaughan Williams c. 1920

Psalm 47:1-2,5-8

O clap your hands, all ye people; shout unto God with the voice of triumph.

For the Lord most high is terrible; he is a great King over all the earth.

God is gone up with a shout, the Lord with the sound of a trumpet.

Sing praises to God, sing praises: sing praises unto our King, sing praises.

For God is the King of all the earth: sing ye praises with understanding.

God reigneth over the heathen: God sitteth upon the throne of his holiness.


O clap your hands (1920), composed by Ralph Vaughan Williams (1872-1958)


Performed by St. Paul’s Cathedral Choir
