78. This is the day

1 This is the day, this is the day
that the Lord has made, that the Lord has made.
We will rejoice, we will rejoice
and be glad in it, and be glad in it.
This is the day that the Lord has made;
we will rejoice and be glad in it.
This is the day, this is the day that the Lord as made.

2 Open to us, open to us
the gates of God, the gates of God;
we will go in, we will go in
and praise the Lord, and praise the lord.
Open to us the gates of God;
we will go in and praise the Lord.
Open to us, open to us the gates of God.

3 You are our God, you are our God;
we will praise your name, we will praise your name;
we will give thanks, we will give thanks
for your faithfulness, for your faithfulness.
You are our God; we praise your name;
we will give thanks for your faithfulness.
You are our God, you are our God;
we will praise your name.
