strength and glory

Psalm 96
"Sing to the LORD a new song;
       sing to the LORD, all the earth.
 Sing to the LORD, praise his name;
       proclaim his salvation day after day.
 Declare his glory among the nations,
       his marvelous deeds among all peoples.
 For great is the LORD and most worthy of praise;
       he is to be feared above all gods.
 For all the gods of the nations are idols,
       but the LORD made the heavens.
 Splendor and majesty are before him;
 Strength and glory are in his sanctuary.
 Ascribe to the LORD, O families of nations,
       ascribe to the LORD glory and strength.
 Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name;
       bring an offering and come into his courts.
 Worship the LORD in the splendor of his holiness;
       tremble before him, all the earth.
 Say among the nations, "The LORD reigns."
       The world is firmly established, it cannot be moved;
       he will judge the peoples with equity.
 Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad;
       let the sea resound, and all that is in it;
 et the fields be jubilant, and everything in them.
       Then all the trees of the forest will sing for joy;
 they will sing before the LORD, for he comes,
       he comes to judge the earth.
       He will judge the world in righteousness
       and the peoples in his truth."
