Sing To JESUS A New Song For HE Has Done Marvelous Things For Us

Psalm 98

A psalm.

1 Sing To The Lord A New Song,
for HE Has Done Marvelous Things;

His Right Hand and His Holy Arm
Have Worked Salvation for Him. 

2The Lord Has Made His Salvation Known
and Revealed His Righteousness to the nations.
3HE Has Remembered His Love
and His Faithfulness to Israel;
all the ends of the earth have seen
The Salvation of our GOD.
4Shout for joy to The Lord, all the earth,
Burst into jubilant song with music;
5Make music to The Lord with the harp,
with the harp and the sound of singing,
6with trumpets and the blast of the ram’s horn—
Shout for joy Before The Lord, The KING.
7Let the sea resound, and everything in it,
the world, and all who live in it.
8Let the rivers clap their hands,
Let the mountains sing together for joy;

9 Let them sing Before The Lord,
for HE Comes To Judge the earth.
HE Will Judge the world in Righteousness
and the peoples with equity.

Sing A Jubilant New Song Unto The Lord JESUS CHRIST, on account of the Great Work of Redemption and Salvation done by Him; and because of the new and living way opened by Him, and because of the new age of the Gospel, which takes place through Him.

For HE Has Done Marvelous Things; by assuming human nature, in that He, being The Word of God, became man, took flesh in the womb of Virgin Mary. In this nature He taught wonderful doctrines, at which His hearers were astonished, wondering from whence He had His wisdom; and in it He did many miraculous works, which filled them with amazement above measure; and especially in it He performed the amazing and surprising Work of man's Redemption.

Through CHRIST's being made under the Law both the precept and penalty of it; through His Being made sin and a curse for men, even for the ungodly, sinners and enemies; a redemption which is of the souls of men from sin, satan, and the Law which includes and secures all the blessings of Grace and Glory, Justification, Pardon, Adoption, and Eternal Life.

To which may be added the Resurrection of Himself from the dead, His Ascension to heaven, the Dispensing of the extraordinary gifts of The HOLY SPIRIT on the apostles, the wonderful success of the Gospel in the Gentile world, the support of His Interest against all the powers on earth, the Destruction of the man of sin, the Calling of the Jews, and the Bringing in of the fullness of the Gentiles; all which marvelous events require a new song of praise.

Another reason of which follows: His Right Hand and His Holy Arm Has Brought Him the victory: over sin, satan, the world, death, and hell, in which HE Has Made His people sharers  more than conquerors; and therefore may well sing the new triumphant song to Him: the words may be rendered, "Has Brought Salvation to Him"; as in Isaiah 59:16

“HE Saw that there was no one, HE Was Appalled that there was no one to intervene; so His Own Arm Achieved Salvation for Him, and His Own Righteousness Sustained Him.”

And to Him Personally, HE Raising Himself from the dead, as a triumphant Conqueror; to Him mystically, His Body the church, to whom HE Is the Author of Salvation; or to Him His Heavenly FATHER, in obedience to His Will, HE Wrought Out Salvation for His people, and for the Honor of His Name, and for the Glorifying of His Perfections. This was all done by Him Alone, by His Right Hand of Power, by the Mighty Arm of His Strength, and which no mere creature could ever have performed: and this HE Did in a way of Holiness; His Holy Arm did it in a way that maintains and secures the Glory of Divine Holiness and Justice.

Amen and amen.
