149. O Praise Ye the LORD

1 O praise ye the LORD and sing a new song,
amid all His saints His praises prolong;
the praise of their Maker His people shall sing,
and children of Zion rejoice in their King.

2 With timbrel and harp and joyful acclaim,
with gladness and mirth, sing praise to His name;
for God in His people His pleasure doth seek,
with robes of salvation He clotheth the meek.

3 In glory exult, ye saints of the LORD;
with songs in the night high praises accord;
go forth in His service, be strong in His might
to conquer all evil and stand for the right.

4 For this is His word: His saints shall not fail,
but over the earth their pow'r shall prevail;
all kingdoms and nations shall yield to their sway.
To God give the glory and praise Him for aye.
