Sing ye with praise unto the Lord
A new and pleasant song;
For He hath wrought throughout the world
His wonders great and strong.

With His right hand fully worthily
He doth His foes devour:
And get Himself the victory,
With His own arm and power.

The Lord doth make His people know
His saving health and might;
The Lord doth make His justice show,
In all the heathen’s sight.

His grace and truth to Israel,
In mind He doth record;
That all the earth hath seen right well
The goodness of the Lord.

Be glad in Him with joyful voice,
All people of the earth;
Give thanks to God, sing and rejoice,
To Him with joy and mirth.

Upon the harp unto Him sing,
Give thanks to Him with psalms;
Rejoice before the Lord our king,
With trumpets and with shalmes.

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

And let the floods rejoice their fills,
And clap their hands apace;
The earth likewise let it begin,
Before the Lord His face.

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