A Song of Praise
(1 Chronicles 16.23-33)
1O sing unto the Lord a new song:
sing unto the Lord, all the earth.
2Sing unto the Lord, bless his name;
show forth his salvation from day to day.
3Declare his glory among the heathen,
his wonders among all people.
4For the Lord is great, and greatly to be praised:
he is to be feared above all gods.
5For all the gods of the nations are idols:
but the Lord made the heavens.
6Honor and majesty are before him:
strength and beauty are in his sanctuary.
7 # Ps 29.1,2. Give unto the Lord, O ye kindreds of the people,
give unto the Lord glory and strength.
8Give unto the Lord the glory due unto his name:
bring an offering, and come into his courts.
9O worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness:
fear before him, all the earth.
10Say among the heathen that the Lord reigneth:
the world also shall be established that it shall not be moved:
he shall judge the people righteously.
11Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad;
let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof.
12Let the field be joyful, and all that is therein:
then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice
13before the Lord: for he cometh,
for he cometh to judge the earth:
he shall judge the world with righteousness,
and the people with his truth.
