The One Hundredth Psalm

Representative Text

1 Come, oh, come with singing,
Lift the joyful shout,
Praise the Lord Jehovah,
Let the song ring out.

Praise him, all ye people,
Lift the heart and sing,
For his truth endureth,
God is Lord and King.

2 Serve the Lord with gladness,
Banish doubt and fear;
He it is that made us,
Now to him come near. [Chorus]

3 He, the tender Shepherd,
Guards the timid sheep;
We are of his pasture,
He will guide and keep. [Chorus]

4 Enter with thanksgiving,
His wide open gates,
Fill his courts with praises,
There Jehovah waits. [Chorus]
