1 Sing praise to the Lord; come, sing a new song.
Amid all his saints his praises prolong.
The praise of their Maker his people shall sing,
and children of Zion rejoice in their King.
2 With timbrel and harp and joyful acclaim,
with dancing and song give praise to his name.
For God in his people his pleasure will seek;
with robes of salvation adorning the meek.
3 In glory exult, you saints of the Lord.
With songs in the night high praises record.
Go forth in his service, be strong in his might
to conquer all evil and stand for the right.
4 For this is God's word: his saints shall not fail,
but over the earth their power shall prevail.
All kingdoms and nations shall yield to their sword--
thus God shows his glory; sing praise to the Lord!
