1 O come let us sing to the Lord,
In God our salvation rejoice;
In psalms of thanksgiving record
His praise with one spirit, one voice!
For Jehovah is king, and He reigns,
The God of all gods on His throne,
The strength of the hills He maintains,

The tide its dominion to know;
The land is Jehovah’s; He laid
Its solid foundations below;
O come let us worship and kneel
Before our creator, our God!
The people who serve Him with zeal,
The flock whom He guides with His rod.

3 As Moses the fathers of old
Through sea and the wilderness led,
His wonderful works we behold,
With manna from Heaven are fed;
Today, let us hearken, today,
To the voice that speaks from above,
And all His commandments obey,
For all His commandments are love.
