1 Unto God our Savior
sing a joyful song;
wondrous are his doings,
for his arm is strong.
He has wrought salvation,
he has made it known,
and before the nations
is his justice shown.

2 Joyful, all you people,
sing before the Lord;
shout and sing his praises
now in glad accord;
with the harp and trumpet
joyful praises bring;
come, rejoice before him,
God, the Lord, your King.

3 Waves of mighty ocean,
earth with fullness stored,
floods and fields and mountains,
sing before the Lord;
for he comes with justice,
evil to redress,
and to judge the nations
in his righteousness.
