Psalm 96

Sing to the LORD a new song;
sing to the LORD, all the earth.
Sing to the LORD, praise his name;
proclaim his salvation day after day.

Declare his glory among the nations,
his marvellous deeds among all peoples.
For great is the LORD and most worthy of praise;
he is to be feared above all gods.

For all the gods of the nations are idols,
but the LORD made the heavens.
Splendour and majesty are before him;
strength and glory are in his sanctuary.

Ascribe to the LORD, O families of nations,
ascribe to the LORD glory and strength.
Ascribe to the LORD the glory due to his name;
bring an offering and come into his courts.

Worship the LORD in the splendour of his holiness;
tremble before him, all the earth.
Say among the nations, The LORD reigns.
The world is firmly established, it cannot be moved;

he will judge the peoples with equity.
Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad;
let the sea resound, and all that is in it;
let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them.

Then all the trees of the forest will sing for joy;
they will sing before the LORD,
for he comes, he comes to judge the earth.
He will judge the world in righteousness
and the peoples in his truth.

Psalm 96 (NIV)
