O come, let us sing unto the Lord,

And show ourselves glad in Him with psalms.
For the Lord is a great God,
And a great King above all gods.

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.

Glory and worship are before Him,
Power and honor are in His sanctuary.

That the Lord is King,
And that He made the world so fast
It cannot be moved.

Upon His holy hill,
For the Lord our God is holy.

In comparison of the earth,
So great is His mercy towards them that fear Him.

There is sprung up a light for the righteous,
And joyful gladness, for such as are true hearted.
Rejoice, in the Lord, ye righteous.
