This is the meter of the hymn, "The Church's One Foundation"

1.  Sing to the Lord a new song,
    He has done marv-'lous things!
    His right hand and arm ho-ly
    Have got-ten vic-to-ry.
    The Lord made known his vic-t'ry,
    His vin-di-ca-tion known
    In the sight of the na-tions
    Through-out the whole wide earth.
2.  His con-stant, faith-ful love he
    To Is-ra-el re-called.
    All of the na-tions have seen
    The vic-t'ry of our God.
    To him make joy-ful nois-es,
    With songs of joy and praise.
    With harp sing prais-es to him,
    With lyre and mel-o-dy.
3.  With sound of horns and trum-pets
    Re-joice to God, the King!
    Let seas roar, and all in them;
    The world, and all there-in.
    Let o-ceans clap, let hills sing
    For joy be-fore the Lord,
    Who comes to judge with just-ice
    All peo-ples of the earth.
