1 Sing to the Lord a new song, ♦︎
for he has done marvellous things.
2 His own right hand and his holy arm ♦︎
have won for him the victory.
3 The Lord has made known his salvation; ♦︎
his deliverance has he openly shown in the sight of the nations.
4 He has remembered his mercy and faithfulness
towards the house of Israel, ♦︎
and all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.
5 Sound praises to the Lord, all the earth; ♦︎
break into singing and make music.
6 Make music to the Lord with the lyre, ♦︎
with the lyre and the voice of melody.
7 With trumpets and the sound of the horn ♦︎
sound praises before the Lord, the King.
8 Let the sea thunder and all that fills it, ♦︎
the world and all that dwell upon it.
9 Let the rivers clap their hands ♦︎
and let the hills ring out together before the Lord,
for he comes to judge the earth.
10 In righteousness shall he judge the world ♦︎
and the peoples with equity.
1 I will give thanks to you, O Lord, with my whole heart; ♦︎
before the gods will I sing praise to you.
2 I will bow down towards your holy temple and praise your name,
because of your love and faithfulness; ♦︎
for you have glorified your name
and your word above all things.
3 In the day that I called to you, you answered me; ♦︎
you put new strength in my soul.
4 All the kings of the earth shall praise you, O Lord, ♦︎
for they have heard the words of your mouth.
5 They shall sing of the ways of the Lord, ♦︎
that great is the glory of the Lord.
6 Though the Lord be high, he watches over the lowly; ♦︎
as for the proud, he regards them from afar.
7 Though I walk in the midst of trouble,
you will preserve me; ♦︎
you will stretch forth your hand against the fury of my enemies;
your right hand will save me.
8 The Lord shall make good his purpose for me; ♦︎
your loving-kindness, O Lord, endures for ever;
forsake not the work of your hands.
How good it is to make music for our God, ♦︎
how joyful to honour him with praise.
2 The Lord builds up Jerusalem ♦︎
and gathers together the outcasts of Israel.
3 He heals the brokenhearted ♦︎
and binds up all their wounds.
4 He counts the number of the stars ♦︎
and calls them all by their names.
5 Great is our Lord and mighty in power; ♦︎
his wisdom is beyond all telling.
6 The Lord lifts up the poor, ♦︎
but casts down the wicked to the ground.
7 Sing to the Lord with thanksgiving; ♦︎
make music to our God upon the lyre;
8 Who covers the heavens with clouds ♦︎
and prepares rain for the earth;
9 Who makes grass to grow upon the mountains ♦︎
and green plants to serve our needs.
10 He gives the beasts their food ♦︎
and the young ravens when they cry.
11 He takes no pleasure in the power of a horse, ♦︎
no delight in human strength;
12 But the Lord delights in those who fear him, ♦︎
who put their trust in his steadfast love.
