Sing a new song, alleluia,
sing aloud to God the King.
Let the saints of God adore him,
let their joyful praises ring.
1 Let instruments and voices
make music to the Lord;
be glad, O ransomed people,
rejoice with one accord!

2 The Lord accepts the service
of those who love his name;
he leads them on in triumph
his greatness to proclaim.
Chorus

3 They wield the sword of justice,
for God their hands are strong;
they challenge men and nations,
and fight all forms of wrong.

4 They work for truth and goodness,
the noble and the right;
and this will be their glory-
to triumph in the fight.
Chorus
