Representative Text

1 Sing ye with praise unto the Lord
new songs with joy and mirth,
Sing unto him with one accord,
all people on the earth.

2 Yea, sing unto the Lord alway,
praise ye his holy Name,
Declare and shew from day to day
salvation by the same.

3 Among the heathen all declare
his honor round about;
To shew his wonders do not spare
in all the world throughout.

4 For why? the Lord is great in might
and worthy of all praise,
And he is to be feared of right
above all gods always.

5 For all the gods of heathen folk
are idols that will fade,
Whereas our God, he is the Lord
that heav'n and earth hath made.

6 All praise and honor also dwell
ever before his face;
Both pow'r and might likewise excel
within his holy place.

7 Ascribe unto the Lord therefore,
all men with one accord,
All might and worship evermore
ascribe unto the Lord:

8 Ascribe unto the Lord also
the glory of his Name;
Into his courts with presents go,
and offer there the same.

The Second Part.

9 Fall down and worship ye the Lord,
within his temple bright;
Let all the people of the world
be fearful at his sight.

10 Tell all the world, be not afraid,
the Lord doth reign above,
Yea, he the earth so fast hath stayed,
that it can never move:

11 And that it is the Lord alone
that rules with princely might,
To judge the nations ev'ry one
with equity and right.

12 The heav'ns shall joyfully begin,
the earth likewise rejoice,
The sea with all that is therein
shall shout aud make a noise;

13 The fields shall joy, and ev'ry thing
that springeth on the earth,
The wood and ev'ry tree shall sing
with gladness and with mirth.

14 Before the presence of the Lord,
and coming of his might,
When he shall come to judge the world,
and rule his folk with right.
