1 Sing HALLELUJAH: to the LORD
a new song to Him sing:
In the assembly of his sainra,
make ye his praises ring.
2 Let Isr'el in his makers be
exceeding glad and sing:
And all who Zion's children are,
exult in Him their king.
3 O let them with a leaping joy
give praises to his name;
The harp and timbrel join and sing,
aloud his praise proclaim.
4 For in his people whom He chose
JEHOVAH pleasure takes;
And with salvation all the meek
most beautiful He makes.
5 In glory let his holy ones
And ev'n aloud upon their beds
in songs lift up their voice.
6 Let the high praises of our God,
their mouths with gladness yield;
And let a two-edg'd sword be put
into their hands to wield.
7 Vengeance and judgments to dispense
among the heathen lands;
8 To bind their haughty kings in chains,
and peers with iron bands.
9 The judgment written in his word
justly on them to bring:
This honour is for all the saints:
then HALLELUJAH sing.
