O sing a new song to the LORD,
for wonders he has done;
His right hand and his holy arm
the victory have won.
The LORD declared his saving work
and made it to be known;
To all the nations of the world
his righteousness is shown.
His steadfast love and faithfulness
he has remembered well--
The covenant he made with them,
the house of Israèl.
And all the nations of the earth
have seen what God has done--
Our God who brings deliverance
by his right hand alone.
Acclaim the LORD, O all the earth;
shout loudly and rejoice.
Make music and be jubilant;
to him lift up your voice.
With harp make music to the LORD;
with harp his praises sing.
With trumpet and with horn rejoice
before the LORD, the King.
Let earth, the sea and all in them
Let streams clap hands and mountains sing
Now let them sing before the LORD,
who comes to judge the earth;
He’ll judge the world in righteousness,
the peoples in his truth.

HYMN | Tell out, my Soul, the greatness of the Lord
Tell out, my soul, the greatness of the Lord!
Unnumbered blessings give my spirit voice;
Tender to me the promise of his word;
In God my Savior shall my heart rejoice.
Tell out, my soul, the greatness of his Name!
Make known his might, the deeds his arm has done;
His mercy sure, from age to age to same;
His holy Name--the Lord, the Mighty One.
Tell out, my soul, the greatness of his might!
Powers and dominions lay their glory by
Proud hearts and stubborn wills are put to flight
The hungry fed, the humble lifted high.
Tell out, my soul, the glories of his word!
Firm is his promise, and his mercy sure
Tell out, my soul, the greatness of the Lord
To children's children and for evermore!
Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the
work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain and may the
blessing of God - Father, Son and Holy Spirit – rest upon you, this day and evermore.
