Representative Text

1 O sing, all ye lands, with jubilant voice;
Glory be to God!
O serve him with gladness, before him now rejoice;
Sing praise unto God out of Zion!

2 The Lord, he is God, he hath made us, not we;
Glory be to God!
The sheep of his pasture we evermore shall be;
Sing praise unto God out of Zion!

3 O enter his gates with thanksgiving and praise;
Glory be to God!
To honor his Name gladsome voices we will raise;
Sing praise unto God out of Zion!

4 For good is the Lord, and his mercy is sure;
Glory be to God!
To all generations his truth shall e'er endure;
Sing praise unto God out of Zion!
