Make a joyful noise unto the Lord,
all ye lands.
Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing.
Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
Enter into his gates with thanks-
giving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
For the Lord is good; his mercy is
everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.
