1 New songs of celebration render
to him who has great wonders done;
love sits enthroned in ageless splendor;
come and adore the mighty One.
He has made known his great salvation
which all his friends with joy confess.
He has revealed to ev'ry nation
his everlasting righteousness.
2 Joyfully, heartily resounding,
let every instrument and voice
peal out the praise of grace abounding,
calling the whole world to rejoice.
Trumpets and organs, set in motion
such sounds as make the heavens ring:
all things that live in earth and ocean
make music for your mighty King.
3 Rivers and seas and torrents roaring,
honor the Lord with wild acclaim;
mountains and stones, look up adoring
and find a voice to praise his name.
Righteous, commanding, ever glorious,
praises be his that never cease:
just is our God, whose truth victorious
establishes the world in peace.
