Psalm 95

Venite, exultemus
O come, let us sing unto the Lord  *
let us heartily rejoice in the strength of our salvation.
Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving *
and shew ourselves glad in him with psalms.
For the Lord is a great God *
and a great King above all gods.
In his hand are all the corners of the earth *
and the strength of the hills is his also.
The sea is his, and he made it *
and his hands prepared the dry land.
O come, let us worship and fall down *
and kneel before the Lord our Maker.
For he is the Lord our God *
and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand.
To-day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts *
as in the provocation, and as in the day of temptation in the wilderness.
When your fathers tempted me *
proved me, and saw my works.
Forty years long was I grieved with this generation, and said *
It is a people that do err in their hearts, for they have not known my ways;
Unto whom I sware in my wrath *
that they should not enter into my rest.

Psalm 96

Cantate Domino
O sing unto the Lord a new song  *
sing unto the Lord, all the whole earth.
Sing unto the Lord, and praise his Name *
be telling of his salvation from day to day.
Declare his honour unto the heathen *
and his wonders unto all people.
For the Lord is great, and cannot worthily be praised *
he is more to be feared than all gods.
As for all the gods of the heathen, they are but idols *
but it is the Lord that made the heavens.
Glory and worship are before him *
power and honour are in his sanctuary.
Ascribe unto the Lord, O ye kindreds of the people *
ascribe unto the Lord worship and power.
Ascribe unto the Lord the honour due unto his Name *
bring presents, and come into his courts.
O worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness *
let the whole earth stand in awe of him.
Tell it out among the heathen that the Lord is King *
and that it is he who hath made the round world so fast that it cannot be moved; and how that he shall judge the people righteously.
Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad *
let the sea make a noise, and all that therein is.
Let the field be joyful, and all that is in it *
then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice before the Lord.
For he cometh, for he cometh to judge the earth *
and with righteousness to judge the world, and the people with his truth.
