1 O come, let us sing unto the Lord; let us heartily rejoice in the strength of our salvation. 2 Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving; and show ourselves glad in him with psalms. 3 For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all gods. 4 In his hand are all the corners of the earth; and the strength of the hills is his also. 5 The sea is his, and he made it; and his hands prepared the dry land. 6 O come let us worship and fall down, and kneel before the Lord our Maker. 7 For he is the Lord our God; and we are the people of his pasture and the sheep of his hand. 8 O worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness; let the whole earth stand in awe of him. 9 For he cometh, for he cometh to judge the earth; and with righteousness to judge the world, and the peoples with his truth. 10 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.
