A Call to Worship the Lord the Righteous Judge.

1 aSing to the Lord a bnew song;

Sing to the Lord, all the earth.

2 Sing to the Lord, bless His name;

aProclaim good tidings of His salvation from day to day.

3 Tell of aHis glory among the nations,

His wonderful deeds among all the peoples.

4 For agreat is the Lord and bgreatly to be praised;

He is to be cfeared dabove all gods.

5 For aall the gods of the peoples are 1idols,

But bthe Lord made the heavens.

6 aSplendor and majesty are before Him,

Strength and beauty are in His sanctuary.

7 1Ascribe to the Lord, O afamilies of the peoples,

1bAscribe to the Lord glory and strength.

8 1Ascribe to the Lord the aglory of His name;

Bring an 2boffering and come into His courts.

9 aWorship the Lord in 1holy attire;

bTremble before Him, all the earth.

10 Say among the nations, “aThe Lord reigns;

Indeed, the aworld is firmly established, it will not be moved;

He will bjudge the peoples with 1equity.”

11 Let the aheavens be glad, and let the bearth rejoice;

Let cthe sea 1roar, and 2all it contains;

12 Let the afield exult, and all that is in it.

Then all the btrees of the forest will sing for joy

13 Before the Lord, afor He is coming,

For He is coming to judge the earth.

bHe will judge the world in righteousness

And the peoples in His faithfulness.
