Parallel
96
1Sing to the Lord a new song!
Sing to the Lord, all the earth.
2Sing to the Lord!
Bless his name!
Proclaim his salvation from day to day!
3Declare his glory amongst the nations,
his marvellous works amongst all the peoples.
4For the Lord is great, and greatly to be praised!
He is to be feared above all gods.
5For all the gods of the peoples are idols,
but the Lord made the heavens.
6Honour and majesty are before him.
Strength and beauty are in his sanctuary.
7Ascribe to the Lord, you families of nations,
ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.
8Ascribe to the Lord the glory due to his name.
Bring an offering, and come into his courts.
9Worship the Lord in holy array.
Tremble before him, all the earth.
10Say amongst the nations, “The Lord reigns.”
The world is also established.
It can’t be moved.
He will judge the peoples with equity.
11Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice.
Let the sea roar, and its fullness!
12Let the field and all that is in it exult!
Then all the trees of the woods shall sing for joy
13before the Lord; for he comes,
for he comes to judge the earth.
He will judge the world with righteousness,
the peoples with his truth.
