1 Sing to the Lord a new song; ♦︎
sing to the Lord, all the earth.
2 Sing to the Lord and bless his name; ♦︎
tell out his salvation from day to day.
3 Declare his glory among the nations ♦︎
and his wonders among all peoples.
4 For great is the Lord and greatly to be praised; ♦︎
he is more to be feared than all gods.
5 For all the gods of the nations are but idols; ♦︎
it is the Lord who made the heavens.
6 Honour and majesty are before him; ♦︎
power and splendour are in his sanctuary.
7 Ascribe to the Lord, you families of the peoples; ♦︎
ascribe to the Lord honour and strength.
8 Ascribe to the Lord the honour due to his name; ♦︎
bring offerings and come into his courts.
9 O worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness; ♦︎
let the whole earth tremble before him.
10 Tell it out among the nations that the Lord is king. ♦︎
He has made the world so firm that it cannot be moved;
he will judge the peoples with equity.
11 Let the heavens rejoice and let the earth be glad; ♦︎
let the sea thunder and all that is in it;
12 Let the fields be joyful and all that is in them; ♦︎
let all the trees of the wood shout for joy before the Lord.
13 For he comes, he comes to judge the earth; ♦︎
with righteousness he will judge the world
and the peoples with his truth.
1 The Lord is king: let the earth rejoice; ♦︎
let the multitude of the isles be glad.
2 Clouds and darkness are round about him; ♦︎
righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.
3 Fire goes before him ♦︎
and burns up his enemies on every side.
4 His lightnings lit up the world; ♦︎
the earth saw it and trembled.
5 The mountains melted like wax at the presence of the Lord, ♦︎
at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.
6 The heavens declared his righteousness, ♦︎
and all the peoples have seen his glory.
7 Confounded be all who worship carved images
and delight in mere idols. ♦︎
Bow down before him, all you gods.
8 Zion heard and was glad, and the daughters of Judah rejoiced, ♦︎
because of your judgements, O Lord.
9 For you, Lord, are most high over all the earth; ♦︎
you are exalted far above all gods.
10 The Lord loves those who hate evil; ♦︎
he preserves the lives of his faithful
and delivers them from the hand of the wicked.
11 Light has sprung up for the righteous ♦︎
and joy for the true of heart.
12 Rejoice in the Lord, you righteous, ♦︎
and give thanks to his holy name.
1 O be joyful in the Lord, all the earth; ♦︎
serve the Lord with gladness
and come before his presence with a song.
2 Know that the Lord is God; ♦︎
it is he that has made us and we are his;
we are his people and the sheep of his pasture.
3 Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise; ♦︎
give thanks to him and bless his name.
4 For the Lord is gracious; his steadfast love is everlasting, ♦︎
and his faithfulness endures from generation to generation.
