O come let us sing unto the Lord,
Let us make a joyful noise.
Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving,
(Psalm 95:1-2)
And enter his courts with praise.
(Psalm 100:4)
O come let us worship and bow down,
Let us kneel before the Lord our maker.
For he is our God,
And we are the people of his pasture.
(Psalm 95:6-7)
Exalt the Lord our God,
And worship at his holy hill,
For the Lord our God is holy.
(Psalm 99:9)
Hallelujah, Amen.
