Psalm 98

Refrain:    The Lord has made known his salvation.

1    Sing to the Lord a new song,  

for he has done marvellous things.

2    His own right hand and his holy arm  

have won for him the victory.

3    The Lord has made known his salvation;  

his deliverance has he openly shown in the sight of the nations.

4    He has remembered his mercy and faithfulness

towards the house of Israel,  

and all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God. [R]

5    Sound praises to the Lord, all the earth;  

break into singing and make music.

6    Make music to the Lord with the lyre,  

with the lyre and the voice of melody.

7    With trumpets and the sound of the horn  

sound praises before the Lord, the King. [R]

8    Let the sea thunder and all that fills it,  

the world and all that dwell upon it.

9    Let the rivers clap their hands  

and let the hills ring out together before the Lord,

for he comes to judge the earth.

10  In righteousness shall he judge the world  

and the peoples with equity.

Refrain:    The Lord has made known his salvation.

Lord God, just and true,

you make your salvation known in the sight of the nations;

tune the song of our hearts to the music of creation

as you come among us to judge the earth;

through our Saviour Jesus Christ.
