SUGGESTED TUNE:  CWM RHONDDA
This is the meter of the hymn "Guide Me, O Thou Great Jehovah."

1.  Praise the Lord!  Sing him a new song,
    Praise him with all faith-ful ones!
    Is-rael, be glad in your Mak-er,
    Zi-on, in your King re-joice!
    Let his name be praised with danc-ing,
    Play him songs on harps and drums,
    Play him songs on harps and drums.
2.  God takes plea-sure in his peo-ple,
    Gives the hum-ble vic-to-ry.
    Faith-ful ones, re-joice in glo-ry;
    On your couch-es sing for joy.
    God's high prais-es in your throats be,
    In your hands be two-edged swords,
    In your hands be two-edged swords.
3.  God wreaks ven-geance on the na-tions
    And to peo-ples judg-ment brings;
    And their rul-ers and their great ones
    Shall be bound in chains of iron,
    That God's judg-ment be up-on them.
    This is glo-ry to God's own.
    Hal-le-lu-jah!  Praise the Lord!
