1Sing a new song to the Lord! Sing to the Lord, all the world!2Sing to the Lord, and praise him! Proclaim every day the good news that he has saved us.3Proclaim his glory to the nations, his mighty deeds to all peoples.4The Lord is great and is to be highly praised; he is to be honored more than all the gods.5The gods of all other nations are only idols, but the Lord created the heavens.6Glory and majesty surround him; power and beauty fill his Temple.7Praise the Lord, all people on earth; praise his glory and might.8Praise the Lord's glorious name; bring an offering and come into his Temple.9Bow down before the Holy One when he appears; tremble before him, all the earth!10Say to all the nations, "The Lord is king! The earth is set firmly in place and cannot be moved; he will judge the peoples with justice."11Be glad, earth and sky! Roar, sea, and every creature in you;12be glad, fields, and everything in you! The trees in the woods will shout for joy13when the Lord comes to rule the earth. He will rule the peoples of the world with justice and fairness.
1The Lord is king! Earth, be glad! Rejoice, you islands of the seas!2Clouds and darkness surround him; he rules with righteousness and justice.3Fire goes in front of him and burns up his enemies around him.4His lightning lights up the world; the earth sees it and trembles.5The hills melt like wax before the Lord, before the Lord of all the earth.6The heavens proclaim his righteousness, and all the nations see his glory.7Everyone who worships idols is put to shame; all the gods bow down before the Lord.8The people of Zion are glad, and the cities of Judah rejoice because of your judgments, O Lord.9Lord Almighty, you are ruler of all the earth; you are much greater than all the gods.10The Lord loves those who hate evil; he protects the lives of his people; he rescues them from the power of the wicked.11Light shines on the righteous, and gladness on the good.12All you that are righteous be glad because of what the Lord has done! Remember what the holy God has done, and give thanks to him.
1Sing a new song to the Lord; he has done wonderful things! By his own power and holy strength he has won the victory.2The Lord announced his victory; he made his saving power known to the nations.3He kept his promise to the people of Israel with loyalty and constant love for them. All people everywhere have seen the victory of our God.4Sing for joy to the Lord, all the earth; praise him with songs and shouts of joy!5Sing praises to the Lord! Play music on the harps!6Blow trumpets and horns, and shout for joy to the Lord, our king.7Roar, sea, and every creature in you; sing, earth, and all who live on you!8Clap your hands, you rivers; you hills, sing together with joy before the Lord,9because he comes to rule the earth. He will rule the peoples of the world with justice and fairness.
1The Lord is king, and the people tremble. He sits on his throne above the winged creatures, and the earth shakes.2The Lord is mighty in Zion; he is supreme over all the nations.3Everyone will praise his great and majestic name. Holy is he!4Mighty king, you love what is right; you have established justice in Israel; you have brought righteousness and fairness.5Praise the Lord our God; worship before his throne! Holy is he!6Moses and Aaron were his priests, and Samuel was one who prayed to him; they called to the Lord, and he answered them.7He spoke to them from the pillar of cloud; they obeyed the laws and commands that he gave them.8O Lord, our God, you answered your people; you showed them that you are a God who forgives, even though you punished them for their sins.9Praise the Lord our God, and worship at his sacred hill! The Lord our God is holy.
1Sing to the Lord, all the world!2Worship the Lord with joy; come before him with happy songs!3Acknowledge that the Lord is God. He made us, and we belong to him; we are his people, we are his flock.4Enter the Temple gates with thanksgiving; go into its courts with praise. Give thanks to him and praise him.5The Lord is good; his love is eternal and his faithfulness lasts forever.
1My song is about loyalty and justice, and I sing it to you, O Lord.2My conduct will be faultless. When will you come to me? I will live a pure life in my house3and will never tolerate evil. I hate the actions of those who turn away from God; I will have nothing to do with them.4I will not be dishonest and will have no dealings with evil. 5I will get rid of anyone who whispers evil things about someone else; I will not tolerate anyone who is proud and arrogant.6I will approve of those who are faithful to God and will let them live in my palace. Those who are completely honest will be allowed to serve me.7No liar will live in my palace; no hypocrite will remain in my presence.8Day after day I will destroy the wicked in our land; I will expel all who are evil from the city of the Lord.
1Listen to my prayer, O Lord, and hear my cry for help!2When I am in trouble, don't turn away from me! Listen to me, and answer me quickly when I call!3My life is disappearing like smoke; my body is burning like fire.4I am beaten down like dry grass; I have lost my desire for food.5I groan aloud; I am nothing but skin and bones.6I am like a wild bird in the desert, like an owl in abandoned ruins.7I lie awake; I am like a lonely bird on a housetop.8All day long my enemies insult me; those who mock me use my name in cursing.9Because of your anger and fury, ashes are my food, and my tears are mixed with my drink. You picked me up and threw me away.11My life is like the evening shadows; I am like dry grass.12But you, O Lord, are king forever; all generations will remember you.13You will rise and take pity on Zion; the time has come to have mercy on her; this is the right time.14Your servants love her, even though she is destroyed; they have pity on her, even though she is in ruins.15The nations will fear the Lord; all the kings of the earth will fear his power.16When the Lord rebuilds Zion, he will reveal his greatness.17He will hear his forsaken people and listen to their prayer.18Write down for the coming generation what the Lord has done, so that people not yet born will praise him.19The Lord looked down from his holy place on high, he looked down from heaven to earth.20He heard the groans of prisoners and set free those who were condemned to die.21And so his name will be proclaimed in Zion, and he will be praised in Jerusalem22when nations and kingdoms come together and worship the Lord.23The Lord has made me weak while I am still young; he has shortened my life.24O God, do not take me away now before I grow old. O Lord, you live forever;25long ago you created the earth, and with your own hands you made the heavens.26They will disappear, but you will remain; they will all wear out like clothes. You will discard them like clothes, and they will vanish.27But you are always the same, and your life never ends.28Our children will live in safety, and under your protection their descendants will be secure.
