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 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.
O worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness; Let the whole earth stand in awe of him.
For he cometh to judge the earth; and with righteousness to judge the world, and the peoples with his truth.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost; As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
