Scripture: Psalm 98
Theme: Psalms

1.  New songs of celebration render 
    To God who has great wonders done;
    Love sits enthroned in ageless splendor;
    Come and adore the mighty One.
    God has made known the great salvation
    Which all the saints with joy confess.
    God has revealed to every nation
    Truth and unending righteousness.

2.  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,
    Sound forth the song, your praises bring.

3.  Rivers and seas and torrents roaring,
    Honor the Lord with wild acclaim;
    Mountains and stones, look up adoring,
    And find a voice to praise God's name.
    Righteous, commanding, ever glorious,
    Praises be sung that never cease:
    Just is our God, whose truth victorious 
    Establishes the world in peace.
