Representative Text

1 Joyfully singing to the Lord,
praising God on high,
all of the earth in thankfulness
joins in glad reply.

Blessed are your days,
holy are your nights,
wondrous is your love all of our lives.
Lord, bring us together from east and from the west.
Show us your mountain, your dwelling place,
your life of holiness.

2 God, in your mercy, free our hearts
to praise your holy name,
helping the poor and lowly ones
faithfully proclaim. [Refrain]

3 Gather the nations to you, Lord,
draw them to your care,
coming from all distant lands
gladly to declare. [Refrain]
