1 Sing to the Lord, a new-made song,
Who wond'rous things has done;
Whit his right hand and holy arm
The conquest he has won.
2 The Lord has through th' astonish'd world
Display'd his saving might,
And made his righteous acts appear
In all the heathen's sight.
3 Let therefore earth's inhabitants
Their cheerful voices raise;
And all, with universal joy,
Resound their Maker's praise.
4 To welcome down the world's great Judge,
Who does with justice come,
And with impartial equity,
Both to reward and doom.

Sing to the Lord a new-made song, Who wondrous things, &. Tate & Brady. [ Ps. xcviii.] This N. V. (1696) paraphrase of Ps. 98 is not in common use. The cento given in Spurgeon's Our Own Hymn Book, 1866, as No. 98, is composed of st. i.-iv. from this paraphrase, and st. v., vi., of Bishop Mant's version of the same psalm, 1824.
