Shiru l’adonai shir chadash – O sing unto the Lord a new song – Psalm 96. Verses 1 – 4, for alto voice, flute and piano


Setting of Psalm 96
Shiru l’adonai shir chadash; shiru l’adonai kol haaretz.
Shiru l’adonai bar’chu sh’mo; basru miyom l’yom y’shu’ato.
Sapru bagoyim k’vodo; b’chol ha’amim niflotav.
Ki gadol adonai umhulal m’od; nora hu al kol elohim.

שִׁירוּ לַיהוָה, שִׁיר חָדָשׁ; שִׁירוּ לַיהוָה, כָּל-הָאָרֶץ.
שִׁירוּ לַיהוָה, בָּרְכוּ שְׁמוֹ; בַּשְּׂרוּ מִיּוֹם-לְיוֹם, יְשׁוּעָתוֹ.
סַפְּרוּ בַגּוֹיִם כְּבוֹדוֹ; בְּכָל-הָעַמִּים, נִפְלְאוֹתָיו.
כִּי גָדוֹל יְהוָה וּמְהֻלָּל מְאֹד; נוֹרָא הוּא, עַל-כָּל-אֱלֹהִים.

1 O sing unto the LORD a new song; sing unto the LORD, all the earth.
2 Sing unto the LORD, bless His name; proclaim His salvation​ from day to day.
3 Declare His glory among the nations, His marvellou​s works among all the peoples.
4 For great is the LORD, and highly to be praised; He is to be feared above all gods.
