S43. Be joyful in the Lord, all you lands

1. Be joyful in the Lord, all you lands;
serve the Lord with gladness
and come before his presence with a song. [Ant.]

2. Know this: The Lord himself is God;
he himself has made us, and we are his;
we are his people and the sheep of his pasture. [Ant.]

3. Enter his gates with thanksgiving;
go into his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and call upon his Name. [Ant.]

4. For the Lord is good;
his mercy is everlasting;
and his faithfulness endures from age to age. [Ant.]

Glory to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit;
As it was in the beginning, is now,
and will be for ever. Amen. [Ant.]
