Come, Let Us Sing unto the Lord

Representative Text

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 victory won.

2 The great salvation of our God
Is seen through all the earth abroad;
Before the heathen’s wond'ring sight,
He hath 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 billow 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 robes and throned in light,
the Lord shall judge, dispensing right.

Trinity Hymnal, 1990
