O sing to the Lord a new song;
sing his praise in the congregation of the faithful.
2 Let Israel rejoice in their maker;
let the children of Zion be joyful in their king.
3 Let them praise his name in the dance;
let them sing praise to him with timbrel and lyre.
4 For the Lord has pleasure in his people
and adorns the poor with salvation.
5 Let the faithful be joyful in glory;
let them rejoice in their ranks,
6 With the praises of God in their mouths
and a two-edged sword in their hands;
7 To execute vengeance on the nations
and punishment on the peoples;
8 To bind their kings in chains
and their nobles with fetters of iron;
9 To execute on them the judgement decreed:
such honour have all his faithful servants.
