Sing a new song to Jehovah, 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.

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, sing to Jehovah, praises to Jehovah sing;
With the swelling notes of music shout before the Lord, the King.

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, Jehovah cometh, robed in justice and in might;
He alone will judge the nations, and His judgment shall be right.
