Text Based On Psalms Chapter 96 (KJV)
O sing unto the LORD a new song: sing unto the LORD, all the earth.
Say among the heathen that the LORD reigneth: the world also shall
be established that it shall not be moved: he shall judge the people

BEFORE THE LORD WE BOW
Before the LORD we bow,
the God who reigns above,
and rules the world below,
boundless in power and love.
Our thanks we bring in joy and praise,
our hearts we raise to heaven’s high King.
The nation Thou hast blest-
may well Thy love declare,
from foes and fears at rest,
protected by Thy care.
For this fair land, for this bright day,
our thanks we pay, gifts of Thy hand.
May every mountain height,
each vale and forest green,
shine in Thy Word’s pure light,
and its rich fruits be seen!
May every tongue be tuned to praise,
and join to raise a grateful song.
Earth, hear thy Maker’s voice,
And when in power He comes,
thy great Redeemer own;
believe, obey, rejoice,
and worship Him alone.
Cast down thy pride,
thy sin deplore and bow before the Crucified.
O may our native land,
from all its rending tombs,
send forth a glorious band.
A countless throng,
ever to sing to Heaven’s high King salvation’s song.
A blessèd Seventh Day Sabbath
to all believers.
In the Son’s Name - For the Father’s glory.
