P96a. O sing a new song to the Lord

1 O sing a new song to the Lord:
sing all the earth to God.
2 To God sing, bless his name, show still
his saving health abroad.
3 Among the nations of the earth
his glory do declare;
and unto all the people show
his works that wondrous are.

4 For great's the Lord, and greatly he
is to be magnified;
yea, worthy to be feared is he
above all gods beside.
5 For all the gods are idols dumb
which blinded nations fear;
but our Go d is the Lord, by whom
the heavens created were.

6 Great honour is before his face,
and majesty divine;
strength is within his holy place,
and there doth beauty shine.
7 Do ye ascribe unto the Lord,
of people every tribe,
glory do ye unto the Lord
and mighty power ascribe.

8 Give ye the glory to the Lord
that to his name is due;
come ye into his courts, and bring
an offering with you
9 In beauty of his holiness
O do the Lord adore;
likewise let all the earth throughout
tremble his face before.

10 'Mong heathen say, Jehovah reigns;
the world shall steadfast be
so that it move not; he shall judge
the people righteously.
11 Let heavens be glad before the Lord,
and let the earth rejoice;
let seas and all their fulness roar,
and make a mighty noise.

12 Let fields rejoice, and everything
that springeth of the earth;
then of the forest all the trees
shall shout aloud with mirth
13 before the Lord; because he comes,
to judge the earth comes he;
he'll judge the world with righteousness,
the people faithfully.
