13 - New Songs of Celebration
New songs of celebration render
To Him who has great wonders done
Love sits enthrone in ageless splendor:
Come, and adore the mighty One.
He has made known His great salvation
Which all His friends with joy confess:
He has revealed to every nation
His ever lasting righteousness.
Joyfully heartily resounding
Let every instrument and voice
Peal out the praise of grace abounding
Calling the whole world to rejoice.
Trumpets and organs set in motion
Such sounds as make the heavens ring;
All things that live in earth and ocean,
Make music for your mighty King.
Rivers and seas and torrents roaring
honor the Lord with wild acclaim;
Mountains and stones look up adoring
And find a voice to praise His name.
Righteous, commanding, ever glorious,
Praises be His that never cease:
Just is our God, whose truth victorious
Establishes the world in peace.
