Sing a new song to the Lord! Sing to the Lord, all the world!
Sing to the Lord, and praise him! Proclaim every day the good news that he has saved us.
Proclaim his glory to the nations, his mighty deeds to all peoples.
The Lord is great and is to be highly praised; he is to be honored more than all the gods.
The gods of all other nations are only idols, but the Lord created the heavens.
Glory and majesty surround him; power and beauty fill his Temple.
Praise the Lord, all people on earth; 1 praise his glory and might.

be glad, fields, and everything in you! The trees in the woods will shout for joy
when the Lord comes to rule the earth. He will rule the peoples of the world with justice and fairness.
