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.
