Refrain: The Lord has revealed to the nations,
saving power, saving power, saving power.
1. Sing a new song, all you lands,
of the marvelous deeds of the Lord.
Salvation is born of God's right hand
and holy arm.
2. The saving power of God
has been revealed to all the lands.
His kindness and truth
forever faithful to the house of Israel.
3. All the ends of the earth
have seen the salvation of God.
Shout to the Lord, dance for joy,
sing your praise.
4. Play out your song on the harp,
create a melodious song.
With trumpets and horn
acclaim our King and our God.
