16. Come, Let Us Sing unto the Lord

1 Come, let us sing unto the Lord
new songs of praise with sweet accord;
for wonders great by him are done,
his hand and arm have vict'ry won.

2 The great salvation of our God
is seen through all the earth abroad;
before the heathen’s wond'ring sight
he has revealed his truth and right.

3 He called to mind his truth and grace
in promise made to Israel’s race;
and unto earth’s remotest bound
glad tidings of salvation sound.

4 All lands, to God lift up your voice;
sing praise to him, with shouts rejoice;
with voice of joy and loud acclaim
let all unite and praise his name.

5 Praise God with harp, with harp sing praise,
with voice of psalms his glory raise;
with trumpets, cornets, gladly sing
and shout before the Lord, the King.

6 Let earth be glad, let billows roar
and all that dwell from shore to shore;
let floods clap hands with one accord,
let hills rejoice before the Lord.

7 For lo, he comes; at his command
all nations shall in judgment stand;
in justice robed and throned in light,
the Lord shall judge, dispensing right.
