O praise ye the Lord, Prepare your glad voice

Representative Text

1 O praise ye the Lord!
Prepare your glad voice,
new songs with his saints
assembled to sing;
before his Creator
let Israel rejoice,
and children of Zion
be glad in their King.

2 And let them his name
extol in the dance;
with timbrel and harp
his praises express;
who always takes pleasure
his saints to advance,
and with his salvation
the humble to bless.

3 His saints shall sing loud
with glory and joy,
and rest undismayed;
with songs in the night
the praise of Jehovah
their lips shall employ;
a sword in their right hand
two-edged for the fight;

4 The heathen to judge,
their pride to consume,
to fetter their kings,
their princes to bind;
to execute on them
the long-decreed doom;
such honour for ever
the holy shall find. Hallelujah.
