1 O sing a new song to the Lord;
sing, all the earth and bless that Name;
from day to day God's praise record;
the Lord's redeeming grace proclaim.

2 Tell all the world God's wondrous ways;
tell all the nations far and near:
great is the Lord, and great God's praise;
the Lord alone, let nations fear.

3 The nations’ gods are idols vain;
the shining heavens the Lord supports;
both light and honor lead the train,
while strength and beauty fill the courts.

4 Let every tongue and every tribe
give to the Lord due praise and sing;
all glory unto God ascribe;
come, throng God’s courts, and offerings bring.

5 Let heaven be glad, let earth rejoice;
the teeming sea resound with praise;
let waving fields lift high their voice,
and all the trees their anthem raise.
Alleluia!

Text Information:

When this text appeared in The Psalter, 1912, it was titled “The Message of Redemption,” a helpful reminder that the sung praise of God is a proclamation of “redeeming grace.” The tune, created slightly later, is named with a French-derived word “gonfalon,” meaning “banner.”
