Text:

Sing a new song, sing, all the world!
Sing of honor and majesty, strength and beauty,
Let the heavens be glad, let the earth rejoice!
Let the sea roar, and the hills exult!
Let the trees of the wood sing for joy,
And let the many coastlines be glad.
Break forth into joyous song and sing praises!

We will meditate on the glorious splendor of the majesty.

Praise the maker of sun and moon and shining stars.
Praise fire and hail, snow and frost and stormy wind.
Praise mountains and hills, fruit trees and cedars.
Praise beasts and cattle, creeping things and flying birds.
Praise kings and common people, men and women, old and young.
Praise with the trumpet, praise with harp.
Praise with strings, praise with pipe.
Praise with cymbals, praise with dancing.
Praise with melody, praise with singing!
