O sing unto the Lord a new song; *
sing unto the Lord, all the whole earth.
Sing unto the Lord and praise his Name; *
tell of his salvation from day to day.
Declare his honor to the nations, *
and his wonders to all peoples.
For the Lord is great, and highly to be praised; *
he is more to be feared than all gods.
As for all the gods of the nations, they are but idols; *
but it is the Lord who made the heavens.
Glory and majesty are before him; *
power and honor are in his sanctuary.
Ascribe unto the Lord, O you families of the peoples, *
ascribe unto the Lord worship and power.
Ascribe unto the Lord the honor due unto his Name; *
bring offerings and come into his courts.
O worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness; *
let the whole earth stand in awe of him.
Tell it out among the nations, “The Lord is King; *
it is he who has made the world so firm that it cannot be moved; he shall judge the peoples righteously.”
Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; *
let the sea make a noise, and all that is therein.
Let the field be joyful, and all that is in it; *
then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice before the Lord.
For he comes, for he comes to judge the earth, *
and with righteousness to judge the world, and the peoples with his truth.
The Lord is King; let the earth be glad. *
Indeed, let the multitude of the isles be glad.
Clouds and darkness are round about him; *
righteousness and judgment are the foundation of his throne.
There goes a fire before him *
and burns up his enemies on every side.
His lightnings gave light to the world; *
the earth saw it and was afraid.
The hills melted like wax at the presence of the Lord, *
at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.
The heavens have declared his righteousness, *
and all the people have seen his glory.
Confounded be all those who worship carved images, and who delight in false gods; *
worship him, all you gods.
Zion heard of it and rejoiced, *
and the daughters of Judah were glad because of your judgments, O Lord.
For you, Lord, are most high over all the earth; *
you are exalted far above all gods.
O you who love the Lord, see that you hate the thing which is evil; *
the Lord preserves the souls of his saints; he shall deliver them from the hand of the ungodly.
A light has sprung up for the righteous, *
and joyful gladness for those who are truehearted.
Rejoice in the Lord, you righteous, *
and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.
