1 Oh, sing a new song to the Lord,
for wonders he has done:
with his right hand and holy arm
the vict'ry he has won.
2 The Lord has made this triumph known,
displayed his saving might;
he has revealed his righteousness
in every nation's sight.
3 He mindful of his grace and truth
to Israel's house has been;
the saving power of God our Lord
earth's farther ends have seen.
4 Earth, shout aloud to God the Lord
and make a joyful noise;
break into song and celebrate,
sing praises and rejoice.
5 Sing to the Lord with sound of harp,
let harp and voices ring:
with blare of trumpets, blast of horn,
acclaim the Lord, the King.
6 Let seas, and all within them, roar,
the world, and dwellers there;
let streams clap hands, and mountains sing--
as one their joy declare.
7 Let these all sing before the Lord
who comes earth's judge to be;
he'll judge the world with righteousness,
its folk with equity.
