1 Bring to the Lord a glad new song,
children of grace extol your king:
your love and praise to God belong
to instruments of music, sing!
Let those be warned who spurn God's name,
let rulers all obey God's word:
for justice shall bring tyrants shame
let every creature praise the Lord!

2 Sing praise within these hallowed walls,
worship beneath the dome of heaven;
by cymbals' sound and trumpets' calls
let praises fit for God be given:
with strings and brass and wind rejoice
then join our song in full accord
all living things with breath and voice;
let every creature praise the Lord!

After Psalms 149 and 150, Michael Perry (1942 - 1996)
