Psalm 98

1 Sing a new song to the LORD; he has done wonderful things! By his own power and holy strength he has won the victory.

2 The LORD announced his victory; he made his saving power known to the nations.

3 He 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.

4 Sing for joy to the LORD, all the earth; praise him with songs and shouts of joy!

5 Sing praises to the LORD! Play music on the harps!

6 Blow trumpets and horns, and shout for joy to the LORD, our king.

7 Roar, sea, and every creature in you; sing, earth, and all who live on you!

8 Clap your hands, you rivers; you hills, sing together with joy before the LORD,

9 because he comes to rule the earth. He will rule the peoples of the world with justice and fairness.
