Sing to the Lord, sing His praise, all ye peoples,
New be your song as new honors ye pay;
Sing of His majesty, bless Him forever,
Show His salvation from day to day.

Tell of His wondrous works, tell of His glory,
Till through the nations His name is revered;
Praise and exalt Him, for He is almighty,
God over all, let the Lord be feared.

Vain are the heathen gods, idols and helpless;
God made the heav’ns, and His glory they tell;
Honor and majesty shine out before Him,
Beauty and strength in His temple dwell.

Give unto God most high glory and honor,
Come with your offerings and humbly draw near;
In holy beauty now worship Jehovah,
Tremble before Him with godly fear.

Make all the nations know God reigns forever;
Earth is established as He did decree;
Righteous and just is the king of the nations;
Judging the people with equity.

Let Heav’n and earth be glad; waves of the ocean,
Forest and field, exultation express;
For God is coming, the judge of the nations,
Coming to judge in His righteousness.
