Representative Text

1 O come, give thanks unto the Lord;
His mercy lasts forever.
Sing a song of joy and mirth,
For gracious is God's favor.
O glorious God of ages past
And ages yet to come;
To Him be honor, glory, praise
In this, our earthly home.

2 O sing a song of pure delight,
For God loves one and all.
Clap your hands triumphantly,
Strong in answer to God's call.
O God of hope in all things bright,
Today and evermore.
Almighty, sov'reign, pow'rful God,
Who reigns from shore to shore.

3 O come, rejoice, give shout and dance,
For great is God's power.
Stand and lift your voices loud
For strength this very hour.
Creator God, the source of Life,
The giver of good gifts,
Almighty God, Your presence fills
This place with grace and truth.
