1Shout joyfully unto the Lord;
Let all the earth now sing!
2Come worship; serve with gladsome heart,
Your songs before Him bring.
3Know that the Lord Himself is God,
He made us; not ourselves;
We are His people and His sheep;
His pasture’s where we dwell.
4Enter His gates with thanksgiving,
Into His courts with praise.
Give thanks to Him and bless His name,
Your praises sing always.
5For God is good, His love endures,
Forever it does last;
His faithfulness from age to age
Till life and time are past.

1All people that on earth do dwell,
Sing to the Lord with cheerful voice;
2Him serve with mirth; His praise forth tell;
Come ye before Him and rejoice.
3Know that the Lord is God indeed;
Without our aid, He did us make;
We are His folk; He doth us feed,
And for His sheep He doth us take.
4O enter then His gates with praise;
Within His courts your thanks proclaim;
With grateful hearts your voices raise,
To bless and magnify His name.
5Because the Lord our God is good;
His mercy is forever sure;
His truth at all times firmly stood,
And shall from age to age endure.
