O COME, let us sing unto the LORD: * let us heartily rejoice in the strength of our salvation.

Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving: * and show ourselves glad in him with psalms.

For the LORD is a great God: * and a great King above all gods.

In his hand are all the corners of the earth: * and the strength of the hills is his also.

The sea is his and he made it: * and his hands prepared the dry land.

O come let us worship and fall down: * and kneel before the LORD our Maker.

For he is the LORD our God: * and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand.

O worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness: * let the whole earth stand in awe of him.

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. Amen.
