A Call to Worship the Lord the Righteous Judge.
1Sing to the Lord a new song;
Sing to the Lord, all the earth.
2Sing to the Lord, bless His name;
Proclaim good tidings of His salvation from day to day.
3Tell of His glory among the nations,
His wonderful deeds among all the peoples.
4For great is the Lord and greatly to be praised;
He is to be feared above all gods.
5For all the gods of the peoples are #Or non-existent thingsidols,
But the Lord made the heavens.
6Splendor and majesty are before Him,
Strength and beauty are in His sanctuary.
7 # Lit Give Ascribe to the Lord, O families of the peoples,
# Lit Give Ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.
8 # Lit Give Ascribe to the Lord the glory of His name;
Bring an #Or meal offeringoffering and come into His courts.
9Worship the Lord in #Or the splendor of holinessholy attire;
Tremble before Him, all the earth.
10Say among the nations, “The Lord reigns;
Indeed, the world is firmly established, it will not be moved;
He will judge the peoples with #Or uprightnessequity.”
11Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice;
Let the sea #Or thunderroar, and #Lit its fullnessall it contains;
12Let the field exult, and all that is in it.
Then all the trees of the forest will sing for joy
13Before the Lord, for He is coming,
For He is coming to judge the earth.
He will judge the world in righteousness
And the peoples in His faithfulness.
