1 O sing ye now unto the Lord
a new and pleasant song,
For he hath wrought throughout the world
his wonders great and strong:

2 With his right hand full worthily
he doth his foes devour,
And gets himself the victory
with his own arm and pow'r.

3 The Lord doth make the people know
his saving health and might,
And also doth his justice show
in all the heathen's sight.

4 His grace and truth to Israel
in mind he doth record,
And all the earth hath seen right well
the goodness of the Lord.

5 Be glad in him with joyful voice,
all people on the earth,
Give thanks to God, sing and rejoice
to him with joy and mirth:

6 Upon the harp unto him sing,
give thanks to him always,
Rejoice before the Lord our King,
with trumpets sound his praise.

7 Yea, let the sea with all therein
for joy both roar and swell,
The earth likewise let it begin,
with all that therein dwell.

8 And let the floods rejoice their fills,
and clap their hands apace:
Yea, let the mountains and the hills
triumph before his face.

9 For he shall come to judge and try
the world and every wight,
And rule the people mightily
with justice and with right.
