Sing unto the Lord a new song,
ye that go down to the Sea;
the Isles, and the inhabitants thereof,
ye that go down, go down to the Sea,
the Isles and the inhabitants thereof.
Let them give glory unto the Lord,
and declare his praise,
The Lord shall go forth in his might,
The Lord shall go forth in his might,
He shall prevail against his enemies,
he shall prevail against his enemies:
The Lord who maketh a way in the Sea,
and a path in the mighty waters
He shall, he shall prevail against his enemies;
He sitteth upon the Circle of the Earth;
He stretcheth out the Heav'ns as a Curtain;
He speaketh the word,
and the winds and Seas obey his voice;
The Lord shall strengthen us with his Arm,
and uphold us, uphold us with his right hand;
the Lord shall strengthen us,
The Lord our God is with us;
He is our Redeemer,
ev'n the holy one of Israel.
