1Sing to God a brand-new song.
He’s made a world of wonders!
He rolled up his sleeves,
He set things right.
2God made history with salvation,
He showed the world what he could do.
3He remembered to love us, a bonus
To his dear family, Israel—indefatigable love.
The whole earth comes to attention.
Look—God’s work of salvation!
4Shout your praises to God, everybody!
Let loose and sing! Strike up the band!
5Round up an orchestra to play for God,
Add on a hundred-voice choir.
6Feature trumpets and big trombones,
Fill the air with praises to King God.
7Let the sea and its fish give a round of applause,
With everything living on earth joining in.
8Let ocean breakers call out, “Encore!”
And mountains harmonize the finale—
9A tribute to God when he comes,
When he comes to set the earth right.
He’ll straighten out the whole world,
He’ll put the world right, and everyone in it.
