1 Praise ye the Lord: unto him sing a new song, and his praise In the assembly of his saints in sweet psalms do ye raise. 2 Let Isr'el in his Maker joy, and to him praises sing: Let all that Zion's children are be joyful in their King. 3 O let them unto his great name give praises in the dance; Let them with timbrel and with harp in songs his praise advance. 4 For God doth pleasure take in those that his own people be; And he with his salvätion the meek will beautify. 5 And in his glory excellent let all his saints rejoice: Let them to him upon their beds aloud lift up their voice. 6 Let in their mouth aloft be raised the high praise of the Lord, And let them have in their right hand a sharp two-edgèd sword; 7 To execute the vengeance due upon the heathen all, And make deservèd punishment upon the people fall. 8 And ev'n with chains, as pris'ners, bind their kings that them command; Yea, and with iron fetters strong, the nobles of their land. 9 On them the judgment to perform found written in his word: This honor is to all his saints. O do ye praise the Lord.
