56. O sing a new song to the Lord

1 O sing a new song to the Lord
for marvels he has done;
his right hand and his holy arm
the victory have won.

2 His justice and his righteousness -
the Lord has made them known,
his contant love for Israel
all ends of the earth have seen.

3 Let all the earth now to the Lord
send forth a joyful noise;
lift up your voice aloud to him,
sing praises and rejoice.

4 With harp, with harp and voice of psalms
unto Jehovah sing;
let trumpets and the echoing horn
acclaim the Lord our King!

5 Let seas with all their creatures roar,
the world and dwellers there,
and let the rivers clap their hands,
the hills their joy declare

6 before the Lord: because he comes,
to judge the earth comes he;
he'll judge the world with righteousness,
his folk with equity.
