One of a set of seven delightful psalm settings by Heinrich Schütz (from Opus 5, Becker Psalter settings) in fresh English paraphrases. Schütz’s psalms are tuneful, rhythmic, easy to learn, and useful throughout the year.

Hallelu! Hallelujah! Sing to the Lord a new song.
Let the faithful lift up the praises which unto Him belong.
Let the children of Zion praise their maker and King.
With the dance, with the timbrel, and with the harp His praises sing.

For the Lord takes his pleasure lifting high those of low degree,
Looks upon them with favor and adorns them with victory.
Let the faithful delight in all the Lord God has planned.
Let God's praises be in their mouth, and a sword be in their hand.

God will work out his vengeance on the nations that rage in vain,
Bind the tyrants in fetters, bind the nobles in iron chains,
Give the judgment as written, grant the justice as due.
This is Israel's glory. Sing hallelujah! Hallelu!

Die heilige Gemeine, mit fröhlichem Gemüt,
Singet von Herzen reine dem Herrn ein neues Lied.
Gott hat Israels Samen zu seinem Volk gemacht,
Des Königs werter Name Zion groß Freude bracht.

Sie sollen in dem Reigen loben des Herren Nam;
Mit Pauken, Harfen, Geigen, spielen lieblich zusamm.
Der Herr hat Wohlgefallen an seiner lieben Gmein,
Will den Elenden allen ein Gott und Helfer sein.

Die Heiligen mit Freuden preisen Gott unsern Herrn,
Sein Ehr vor allen Leuten rühmen sie herzlich gern
Und wollen alle Stunden in Gottes Dienste stehn,
Mit Herzen und mit Munde sein Lob und Ehr erhöhn.

Cornelius Becker (1561 — 1604)
