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.
