1 Sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous things; his right hand and his holy arm
have worked salvation for him.

3 He has remembered his love and his faithfulness to Israel; all the ends of the earth have seen
the salvation of our God.
4 Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth, burst into jubilant song with music;
