Psalm 96

From Scottish Metrical Psalms 1650

Meter: 8,6,8,6

1    O sing a new song to the Lord:
       sing all the earth to God.
2    To God sing, bless his name, shew still
       his saving health abroad.
3    Among the heathen nations
       his glory do declare;
     And unto all the people shew
       his works that wondrous are.

4    For great's the Lord, and greatly he
       is to be magnify'd;
     Yea, worthy to be fear'd is he
       above all gods beside.
5    For all the gods are idols dumb,
       which blinded nations fear;
     But our God is the Lord, by whom
       the heav'ns created were.

6    Great honour is before his face,
       and majesty divine;
     Strength is within his holy place,
       and there doth beauty shine.
7    Do ye ascribe unto the Lord,
       of people ev'ry tribe,
     Glory do ye unto the Lord,
       and mighty pow'r ascribe.

8    Give ye the glory to the Lord
       that to his name is due;
     Come ye into his courts, and bring
       an offering with you.
9    In beauty of his holiness,
       O do the Lord adore;
     Likewise let all the earth throughout
       tremble his face before.

10   Among the heathen say, God reigns;
       the world shall stedfastly
     Be fix'd from moving; he shall judge
       the people righteously.
11   Let heav'ns be glad before the Lord,
       and let the earth rejoice;
     Let seas, and all that is therein,
       cry out, and make a noise.

12   Let fields rejoice, and ev'ry thing
       that springeth of the earth:
     Then woods and ev'ry tree shall sing
       with gladness and with mirth
13   Before the Lord; because he comes,
       to judge the earth comes he:
     He'll judge the world with righteousness,
       the people faithfully.
