Original text and translations
O Sing unto the Lord a new song,
un-to the Lord a new song;
Sing unto the Lord all the whole earth.
Sing unto the Lord, and praise his Name:
be tell-ing of his Salvation from day to day.
Declare his honour unto all the heathen;
and his wonders unto all people.
For the Lord is great,
and cannot worthily be praised;
he is more to be fear'd than all Gods.
Glory and worship are before him;
power and honour,
power and honour are in his sanctuary.
