|Text:||Canticle of Praise to God (Venite Exultemus)|
|Tune:||[O come let us sing unto the Lord]|
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.
