Melody from Clark's A Second Set of Psalm Tunes for Country Choirs, c. 1807
1 O SING a new song to the Lord,
For wonders he hath done:
His right hand and his holy arm
Him victory have won.
2 Jehovah his salvation hath
Now caused to be known;
His justice in the heathen's sight
He openly hath shown.
3 He mindful of his grace and truth
To Israel's house hath been;
And the salvation of our God
All ends of the earth have seen.
4 Let all the earth unto the Lord
Send forth a joyful noise;
Lift up your voice aloud to him,
Sing praises, and rejoice.
5 With harp, with harp, and voice of psalms,
Unto Jehovah sing:
6 With trumpets, cornets, gladly sound
Before the Lord the King.
7 Let seas and all their fulness roar;
The world, and dwellers there;
8 Let floods clap hands, and let the hills
Together joy declare
9 Before the Lord; because he comes,
To judge the earth comes he;
He'll judge the world with righteousness,
The nations uprightly.
1 ¬∂ O sing unto the LORD a new song; for he hath done marvellous things: his right hand, and his holy arm, hath gotten him the victory.
2 The LORD hath made known his salvation: his righteousness hath he openly shewed in the sight of the heathen.
3 He hath remembered his mercy and his truth toward the house of Israel: all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.
4 ¬∂ Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise.
5 Sing unto the LORD with the harp; with the harp, and the voice of a psalm.
6 With trumpets and sound of cornet make a joyful noise before the LORD, the King.
7 Let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.
8 Let the floods clap their hands: let the hills be joyful together
9 Before the LORD; for he cometh to judge the earth: with righteousness shall he judge the world, and the people with equity.
