Psalm 96

(from Day 19 Morning Prayer)

Cantate Domino

  1. O SING unto the Lord a new song: sing unto the Lord, all the whole earth.
  2. Sing unto the Lord, and praise his Name: be telling of his salvation from day to day.
  3. Declare his honour unto the heathen: and his wonders unto all people.
  4. For the Lord is great, and cannot worthily be praised: he is more to be feared than all gods.
  5. As for all the gods of the heathen, they are but idols: but it is the Lord that made the heavens.
  6. Glory and worship are before him: power and honour are in his sanctuary.
  7. Ascribe unto the Lord, O ye kindreds of the people: ascribe unto the Lord worship and power.
  8. Ascribe unto the Lord the honour due unto his Name: bring presents, and come into his courts.
  9. O worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness: let the whole earth stand in awe of him.
  10. Tell it out among the heathen that the Lord is King: and that it is he who hath made the round world so fast that it cannot be moved; and how that he shall judge the people righteously.
  11. Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad: let the sea make a noise, and all that therein is.
  12. Let the field be joyful, and all that is in it: then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice before the Lord.
  13. For he cometh, for he cometh to judge the earth: and with righteousness to judge the world, and the people with his truth.
