Psalm 96

1 O sing to the Lord a new song:
    sing to the Lord, all the earth.
2 Sing to the Lord and bless his holy name:
    proclaim the good news of his salvation from day to day.
3 Declare his glory among the nations:
    and his wonders among all peoples.
4 For great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised:
    he is more to be feared than all gods.
5 As for all the gods of the nations, they are mere idols:
    it is the Lord who made the heavens.
6 Majesty and glory are before him:
    beauty and power are in his sanctuary.
7 Render to the Lord, you families of the nations:
    render to the Lord glory and might.
8 Render to the Lord the honour due to his name:
    bring offerings and come into his courts.
9 O worship the Lord in the beauty of his holiness:
    let the whole earth stand in awe of him.
10 Say among the nations that the Lord is king:
    he has made the world so firm that it can never be moved; and he shall judge the peoples with equity.
11 Let the heavens rejoice and let the earth be glad:
    let the sea roar, and all that fills it:
12 Let the fields rejoice, and everything in them:
    then shall all the trees of the wood shout with joy before the Lord;
13 For he comes, he comes to judge the earth:
    he shall judge the world with righteousness, and the peoples with his truth.
