1 Sing a new song to the Lord,
he to whom wonders belong!
Rejoice in his triumph and tell of his power—
O sing to the Lord a new song!

2 Now to the ends of the earth
see his salvation is shown!
And still he remembers his mercy and truth,
unchanging in love to his own.

3 Sing a new song and rejoice,
publish his praises abroad!
Let voices in chorus with trumpet and horn,
resound for the joy of the Lord!

4 Join with the hills and the sea,
thunders of praise to prolong!
In judgment and justice he comes to the earth—
O sing to the Lord a new song!
