1 O come and sing unto the Lord;
to God our voices raise;
let us in our most joyful songs
the Lord, our Savior, praise.
2 Before God's presence let us come
with praise and thankful voice;
let us sing psalms to God with grace;
with grateful hearts, rejoice.
3 The Lord our God is King of kings,
above all gods enthroned;
the depths of earth and mountains high
by God alone are owned.
4 To God the spacious sea belongs;
God made its waves and tides,
and by God's hand the rising land
was formed, and still abides.
5 O come, and bowing down to God
our worship let us bring;
yea, let us kneel before the Lord,
our Maker and our King.

This selection of paraphrased verses from Psalm 95 was prepared by a joint committee of nine North American churches in the Reformed tradition. It is set here to an anonymous and originally nameless tune, eventually named to reﬂect that its ﬁrst publication was in Dublin.
