1Come, let us sing with joy to the Lord. Let us give a loud shout to the Rock who saves us.2Let us come to him and give him thanks. Let us praise him with music and song.3The LORD is the great God. He is the greatest King. He rules over all of the gods.4He owns the deepest parts of the earth. The mountain peaks belong to him.5The ocean is his, because he made it. He formed the dry land with his hands.6Come, let us bow down and worship him. Let us fall on our knees in front of the LORD our Maker.7He is our God. We are the sheep belonging to his flock. We are the people he takes good care of. Listen to his voice today.8If you hear it, don't be stubborn as you were at Meribah. Don't be stubborn as you were that day at Massah in the desert.9There your people of long ago really put me to the test. They did it even though they had seen what I had done for them.10For 40 years I was angry with them. I said, "Their hearts are always going down the wrong path. They do not know how I want them to live."11So when I was angry, I took an oath. I said, "They will never enjoy the rest I planned for them."
1The LORD rules. Let the earth be glad. Let countries that are far away be full of joy.2Clouds and thick darkness surround him. His rule is built on what is right and fair.3The LORD sends fire ahead of him. It burns up his enemies all around him.4His lightning lights up the world. The earth sees it and trembles.5The mountains melt like wax when the LORD is near. He is the Lord of the whole earth.6The heavens announce that what he does is right. All people everywhere see his glory.7All who worship statues of gods or brag about them are put to shame. All you gods, worship the Lord!8Zion hears about it and is filled with joy. Lord, the villages of Judah are glad because of how you judge.9Lord, you are the Most High God. You rule over the whole earth. You are honored much more than all gods.10Let those who love the LORD hate evil. He guards the lives of those who are faithful to him. He saves them from the power of sinful people.11The light of his favor shines on those who do what is right. Joy comes to those whose hearts are honest.12You who are godly, be glad because of what the LORD has done. Praise him, because his name is holy.
1Sing a new song to the Lord. He has done wonderful things. By the power of his right hand and his holy arm he has saved his people.2The LORD has made known his power to save. He has shown the nations that he does what is right.3He has shown his faithful love to the people of Israel. People from one end of the earth to the other have seen that our God has saved us.4Shout to the LORD with joy, everyone on earth. Burst into joyful songs and make music.5Make music to the LORD with the harp. Sing and make music with the harp.6Blow the trumpets. Give a blast on the ram's horn. Shout to the LORD with joy. He is the King.7Let the ocean and everything in it roar. Let the world and all who live in it shout.8Let the rivers clap their hands. Let the mountains sing together with joy.9Let them sing to the Lord, because he is coming to judge the earth. He will judge the nations of the world in keeping with what is right and fair.
1The LORD rules. Let the nations tremble. He sits on his throne between the cherubim. Let the earth shake.2Great is the LORD in Zion. He is honored over all of the nations.3Let them praise his great and wonderful name. He is holy.4The King is mighty. He loves what is fair. He has set up the rules for fairness. He has done what is right and fair for the people of Jacob.5Honor the LORD our God. Worship at his feet. He is holy.6Moses and Aaron were two of his priests. Samuel was one of those who worshiped him. They called out to the Lord. And he answered them.7He spoke to them from the pillar of cloud. They obeyed his laws and the orders he gave them.8LORD our God, you answered them. You showed Israel that you are a God who forgives. But when they did wrong, you punished them.9Honor the LORD our God. Worship at his holy mountain. The LORD our God is holy.
