Full Text

1. Shout to Jehovah all the Earth;
2. Serve him with chearful, Heart and Voice;
Approach his House with sacred Mirth,
Before him triumph, and rejoice.
3. Know that Jehovah's God alone,
!ho us and all did Being give;
We are his People, not our own,
The Sheep that on his Pastures live.

4. Enter his Gates with thankful Joy,
And, in his courts, his Praise proclaim;
Your grateful Songs, in Thanks employ,
And ever bless his holy Name.
5. Because Jehovah he is good,
His Mercy is forever sure;
His Truth, thro' Ages past, has stood,
And shall, thro' ev'ry Age, endure.
