Hymn 173

1  Sing to God new songs of worship-

 all his deeds are marvellous ;

 he has brought salvation to us

 with his hand and holy arm:

 he has shown to all the nations

 righteousness and saving power;

 he recalled his truth and mercy

 to his people Israel.

2 Sing to God new songs of worship-

 earth has seen his victory;

 let the lands of earth be joyful

 praising him with thankfulness:

 sound upon the harp his praises,

 play to him with melody;

 let the trumpets sound his triumph,

 show your joy to God the king!

3 Sing to God new songs of worship-

 let the sea now make a noise;

 all on earth and in the waters

 sound your praises to the Lord!

 Let the hills be joyful together

 let the rivers clap their hands,

 for with righteousness and justice

he will come to judge the earth.

Hymn 449

  1  Rejoice! the Lord is King,

    your Lord and King adore.

    Mortals, give thanks and sing,

    and triumph evermore:

    Lift up your heart, lift up your voice;

    rejoice; again I say: Rejoice!


   2 Jesus the Saviour reigns,

    The God of truth and love;

    when he had purged our stains,

    he took his seat above:

   3 His kingdom cannot fail;

    he rules both earth and heaven;

    the keys of death and hell

    are to our Jesus given:


   4 He sits at God’s right hand

    till all his foes submit,

    and bow to his command,

    and fall before his feet:

   5 Rejoice in glorious hope,

   for Christ, the Judge, shall come,

   and take his servants up

   to their eternal home:

   We then shall hear the archangel’s voice;

  the trump of God shall sound: Rejoice!
