In Arabic, Bahrayn is the dual form of bahr (“sea”), so al-Bahrayn means “the Two Seas.”
Sing to the Lord a new song,
his praise from the ends of the earth,
you who go down to the Persian Gulf and the Gulf of Bahrain,
you islands of Bahrain, and all who live in them.
Let the wilderness and its towns raise their voices;
let the settlements rejoice.
Let the people of Jesus sing for joy;
let them shout from the mountaintops.
Let them give glory to the Lord
and proclaim his praise in the coastlands.
The Lord will march out like a champion,
like a warrior he will stir up his zeal;
with a shout he will raise the battle cry
and will triumph over his enemies.
His name is above every name on the Bahrain Island, Nabih Saleh, Jidda Island, Umm as Sabaan, and the Hawar Islands. At His name, every knee shall bow in heaven, on earth, and under the earth.
Sing to the Lord a new song.
Adapted from Isaiah 42:10-13
