Unto God our Savior sing a joyful song;
Wondrous are His doings, for His arm is strong.
He was wrought salvation, He has made it known,
And before the nations is His justice known.

Joyful, all ye 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.

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.
