Psalm 98
Contemporary English Version

The Lord Works Miracles

1Sing a new song to the Lord!

He has worked miracles,

and with his own powerful arm,

he has won the victory.

2The Lord has shown the nations

that he has the power to save

and to bring justice.

3God has been faithful

in his love for Israel,

and his saving power is seen

everywhere on earth.

4Tell everyone on this earth

to sing happy songs

in praise of the Lord.

5Make music for him on harps.

Play beautiful melodies!

6Sound the trumpets and horns

and celebrate with joyful songs

for our Lord and King!

7Command the ocean to roar

with all its creatures,

and the earth to shout

with all its people.

8Order the rivers

to clap their hands,

and all the hills

to sing together.

9Let them worship the Lord!

He is coming to judge

everyone on the earth,

and he will be honest

and fair.
