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 heathen nations far and near;
Great is the Lord, and great God's praise;
The Lord alone let nations fear.
3 The heathen 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 the courts, and offerings bring.
