149B. Give Praise to Our God

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.
