The LORD has done wonderful things!

Sing a New Song to the LORD God

Sing a new song to the LORD God
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 ev'ry nation,
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, to God sing praises,
Let your songs of praises ring;
with the swelling notes of music
shout before the Lord, the King.

Seas with 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, our God is coming,
robed in justice and in might;
he alone will judge the nations,
and his judgment shall be right.

—F. J. Haydn

Psalm 98
"O sing to the Lord a new song,

For He has done wonderful things,

His right hand and His holy arm 
have gained the victory for Him.

The Lord has made known His salvation;

He has revealed His righteousness 
in the sight of the nations.

He has remembered His lovingkindness 
and His faithfulness to the house of Israel;

All the ends of the earth have seen 
the salvation of our God.

Shout joyfully to the Lord, 
all the earth;
 Break forth and 
sing for joy and sing praises.

Sing praises to the Lord with the lyre,

With the lyre and the sound of melody.

With trumpets and the sound of the horn

Shout joyfully before the King, the Lord.

Let the sea roar and all it contains,

The world and those who dwell in it.

Let the rivers clap their hands,

Let the mountains sing together for joy

before the Lord, for He is coming 
to judge the earth;

He will judge the world with righteousness
And the peoples with equity."
