O sing a new song to the Lord;
Sing all, the earth, to God,
To God sing, bless His name, show still
His sav­ing health abroad.

Great hon­or is be­fore His face,
And ma­jes­ty di­vine;
Strength is with­in His ho­ly place,
And there doth beau­ty shine.

Do ye as­cribe unto the Lord,
Of peo­ple ev­ery tribe,
Glory do ye un­to the Lord
And migh­ty pow­er as­cribe.

Give ye the glo­ry to the Lord
That to His name is due;
Come ye in­to His courts, and bring
An of­fer­ing with you.

In beau­ty of His ho­li­ness,
O do the Lord adore;
Likewise let all the earth through­out
Tremble His face be­fore.
