O sing unto the Lord, and praise his glorious name,
By telling of his wonders every morning,
And his truth day by day.
Declare his honor among the heathen, and his glory among the people.
For the Lord is a great God and worthy to be praised,
He is to be feared above all gods.
Let the heavens rejoice, and the earth be glad,
Let the sea roar, and the fullness thereof, before the Lord.
For he cometh to judge the world.
Hallelujah, Amen.
