The song that is sweetest

O come, let us sing

Author: Mrs. R. N. Turner
Published in 8 hymnals

Full Text

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.

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.
