Psalms 96

Sing a New Song to the Lord
1Sing a new song to the Lord!
Everyone on this earth,
sing praises to the Lord,
2sing and praise his name.
Day after day announce,
“The Lord has saved us!”
3Tell every nation on earth,
“The Lord is wonderful
and does marvelous things!
4The Lord is great and deserves
our greatest praise!
He is the only God
worthy of our worship.
5Other nations worship idols,
but the Lord created
the heavens.
6Give honor and praise
to the Lord,
whose power and beauty
fill his holy temple.”
7 # Ps 29.1,2. Tell everyone of every nation,
“Praise the glorious power
of the Lord.
8He is wonderful! Praise him
and bring an offering
into his temple.
9Everyone on earth, now tremble
and worship the Lord,
majestic and holy.”
10Announce to the nations,
“The Lord is King!
The world stands firm,
never to be shaken,
and he will judge its people
with fairness.”
11Tell the heavens and the earth
to be glad and celebrate!
Command the ocean to roar
with all its creatures
12and the fields to rejoice
with all their crops.
Then every tree in the forest
will sing joyful songs
13to the Lord.
He is coming to judge
all people on earth
with fairness and truth.
