Sing a New Song to the Lord God

Representative Text

1 Sing a new song to Jehovah
for the wonders he has wrought;
his right hand and arm most holy
triumph to his cause have brought.
In his love and tender mercy
he has made salvation known,
in the sight of ev'ry nation
he his righteousness has shown.

2 Truth and mercy toward his people
he has ever kept in mind,
and his full and free salvation
he has shown to all mankind.
Sing, O earth, sing, to Jehovah,
praises to Jehovah sing;
with the swelling notes of music
shout before the Lord, the King.

3 Seas with all your fullness thunder,
all earth's peoples now rejoice;
floods and hills in praise uniting,
to the Lord lift up your voice.
For, behold, the Lord is coming,
robed in justice and in might;
he alone will judge the nations,
and his judgment shall be right.
