O sing unto the Lord

Language: English after the Latin

1. Symphony

2. O sing unto the Lord a new song.

Sing unto the Lord, all the whole earth.

3. Sing unto the Lord,
and praise his name:
be telling of his salvation from day to day.

Declare his honour unto the heathen:
and his wonders unto all people.

Glory and worship are before him :
power and honour are in his sanctuary.

4. The Lord is great, and cannot worthily be praised:
he is more to be feared than all gods.
As for the gods of the heathen, they are but idols:
but it is the Lord that made the heavens.

5. O worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness:
let the whole earth stand in awe of him.

6. Tell it out among the heathen that the Lord is King,
And that t'is He who hath made the round world
so sure that it cannot be moved;
And how that he shall judge the people righteously.
Alleluia. Amen.
