God the Ruler of the World
1Sing a new song to the Lord;
he has done wonderful things!
By his own power and holy strength
he has won the victory.
2The Lord announced his victory;
he made his saving power known to the nations.
3He kept his promise to the people of Israel
with loyalty and constant love for them.
All people everywhere have seen the victory of our God.
4Sing for joy to the Lord, all the earth;
praise him with songs and shouts of joy!
5Sing praises to the Lord!
Play music on the harps!
6Blow trumpets and horns,
and shout for joy to the Lord, our king.
7Roar, sea, and every creature in you;
sing, earth, and all who live on you!
8Clap your hands, you rivers;
you hills, sing together with joy before the Lord,
9because he comes to rule the earth.
He will rule the peoples of the world
with justice and fairness.
