1 Come, let us gladly sing
To God our Savior King;
With thanks his presence seek,
In psalms his praises speak
To God most high; let all draw nigh
And crown him Lord of earth and sky.

2 He gave the mountains birth,
He made the spacious earth;
His all the sea and land—
They rose at his command.
With rev’rence all before him fall,
And on his name devoutly call.

3 Come, kneel before his throne,
For he is God alone;
We are the flock he leads—
The sheep his bounty feed;
Today, today, his voice obey,
Grieve not the Holy Ghost away.
