Christmas Day: Mendelsohn: Psalm 98

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.

The Lord has made His salvation known
and revealed his righteousness to the nations.

He has remembered his love
and His faithfulness
to the house of Israel;
all the ends of the earth
have seen the salvation of our God.

Shout for joy to the Lord,
all the earth,
burst into jubilant song with music;

make music to the Lord with the harp,
with the harp and the sound of singing,

with trumpets
and the blast of the ram's horn
shout for joy before the Lord,
the King.

Let the sea resound,
and everything in it,
the world, and all who live in it.

Let the rivers clap their hands,
let the mountains sing together for joy;

let them sing before the Lord,
for He comes to judge the earth.
He will judge the world in righteousness
and the peoples with equity.
