361. O Praise Ye the Lord

1 O praise ye the Lord and sing a new song,
amid all his saints his praises prolong;
the praise of their Maker his people shall sing,
and children of Zion rejoice in their King.

2 With timbrel and harp and joyful acclaim,
with gladness and mirth, sing praise to his name;
for God in his people his pleasure doth seek,
with robes of salvation he clotheth the meek.

3 In glory exult, ye saints of the Lord;
with songs in the night high praises accord;
go forth in his service, be strong in his might
to conquer all evil and stand for the right.

4 For this is his word: his saints shall not fail,
but over the earth their pow'r shall prevail;
all kingdoms and nations shall yield to their sway.
To God give the glory and praise him for aye.
