1 Sing ye unto the Lord our God
a new rejoicing song,
And let the praise of him be heard
his holy saints among.
2 Let Israel rejoice in God,
and praises to him sing
And let the seed of Zion be
most joyful in their King:
3 Let them sound praise with voice of lute
unto his holy Name,
And with the timbrel and the harp
sing praises to the same.
4 For why? the Lord his pleasure all
hath in his people set,
And by deliv'rance he will raise
the meek to glory great.
5 With glory and with honor now
let all his saints rejoice;
Aloud upon their beds also
advance their singing voice.
6 And in their mouths let be the high
praises of God the Lord,
And in their hands likewise a sharp
and a two-edged sword,
7 To plague the heathen, and correct
the people with their hands;
To bind their stately kings in chains,
their lords in iron bands:
8 To execute on them the doom
that written was before:
This honor all his saints shall have;
Praise ye the Lord therefore.
