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 show 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 depths of the earth *
and the heights of the hills are his also.
The sea is his, for 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 our God, *
and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand.
Today, if you 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 tested me, *
and put me to the proof, though they had seen my works.
Forty years long was I grieved with this generation and said, *
“It is a people that err in their hearts, for they have not known my ways,”
Of whom I swore in my wrath *
that they should not enter into my rest.
O sing unto the Lord a new song; *
sing unto the Lord, all the whole earth.
Sing unto the Lord and praise his Name; *
tell of his salvation from day to day.
Declare his honor to the nations, *
and his wonders to all peoples.
For the Lord is great, and highly to be praised; *
he is more to be feared than all gods.
As for all the gods of the nations, they are but idols; *
but it is the Lord who made the heavens.
Glory and majesty are before him; *
power and honor are in his sanctuary.
Ascribe unto the Lord, O you families of the peoples, *
ascribe unto the Lord worship and power.
Ascribe unto the Lord the honor due unto his Name; *
bring offerings 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 nations, “The Lord is King; *
it is he who has made the world so firm that it cannot be moved; he shall judge the peoples righteously.”
Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; *
let the sea make a noise, and all that is therein.
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 comes, for he comes to judge the earth, *
and with righteousness to judge the world, and the peoples with his truth.
