257. Give Praise to the Lord

1 Give praise to the Lord, and sing a new song,
Amid all the saints God's praises prolong;
A song for 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 good pleasure You seek,
With robes of salvation You cover the meek.

3 In glory exult, all saints of the Lord;
With song in the night high praises accord;
Go forth in God's service and 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 their power shall prevail;
All kingdoms and nations shall yield to their sway.
To God give the glory; sing praises for aye.
