[Ps. 149:1-3] (Chorus I, Chorus II)
Sing ye the Lord a new refrain; the assembly of saints should be telling his praises. Israel joyful be in him who hath made him. Let Zion's children rejoice in him who is their mighty king; let them be praising his name's honor in dances; with timbrels and with psalt'ries unto him be playing.
Chorale (Chorus II)
As doth a father mercy show
Aria (Chorus I)
God, take still further now our part,
[Ps. 150:2 and 6] (Chorus I, Chorus II)
Praise ye the Lord in all his doings, praise ye him in all his might and majesty!
(Chorus I and II)
All things which breath do draw, praise ye the Lord, hallelujah!
