1. O sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord, all the earth!
2. Sing to the Lord, bless (affectionately praise) His Name; show forth His salvation from day to day. 
3. Declare His glory among the nations, His marvellous works among the peoples. 
4. For great is the Lord and greatly to be praised; He is to be reverently feared and worshiped above all (so-called) gods.
