Sing a New Song to the Lord God

Full Text

1 Sing a new song to the LORD God
for the wonders he has wrought;
his right hand and arm most holy
triumph to his cause have brought.
In his love and tender mercy
he has made salvation known;
in the sight of every nation
he his righteousness has shown.

2 Truth and mercy toward his people
he has ever kept in mind,
and his full and free salvation
he has shown to all mankind.
Sing, O earth, to God sing praises,
let your songs of praises ring;
with the swelling notes of music
shout before the LORD, the King.

3 Seas and all your fullness, thunder,
all earth's peoples, now rejoice;
floods and hills, in praise uniting,
to the LORD lift up your voice.
For, behold, our God is coming,
robed in justice and in might;
he alone will judge the nations,
and his judgment shall be right.
