1 O to the LORD a joyful noise,
now make ye, all the earth;
2 With joyfulness JEHOVAH serve;
before Him come with mirth.
3 Know that the LORD is GOD; and He
made us without our aid:
His people and the sheep are we
in his rich pasture fed.
4 O enter then his gates with praise;
and in his courts proclaim
Your thankfulness to Him always,
and ever bless his name.
5 Because the LORD is ever good,
His mercy ever sure;
His truth has thro' all ages stood
and ever will endure.
