1 Give praise to our God and sing a new song,
amid all the saints God's praises prolong;
a song to your Maker and Ruler now raise,
all children of Zion, rejoice and give praise.
2 With timbrel and harp and joyful acclaim,
with gladness and mirth, we praise your great name;
for now in your people your pleasure you seek,
with robes of salvation adorning the meek.
3 In glory exult, you saints of the Word;
with songs in the night high praises accord;
go forth in God's service, be strong in God's might
to conquer all evil and stand for the right.
4 For this is God's word: the saints shall not fail,
but over the earth the humble prevail;
all rulers and nations shall yield to their sway.
To God give the glory; sing praises for aye.

Another post-exilic hymn, Psalm 149 summons God's people to praise their Maker and King (st. 1) with dancing and music for delivering them (st. 2) from all who oppose and oppress them (st. 3). God arms them to execute his sentence of judgment on all world powers that have set themselves against the LORD's kingdom (st. 3-4). As a hymn on Israel's lips amid the travails of their history, this psalm was a confession of faith concerning things promised by the prophets and even foreshadowed in the people's past experience, but not yet seen. The (altered) versification is from the 1912 Psalter.
Especially suitable as a psalm of praise at the close of worship; many other uses in Christian worship.
