All things were made through Him,
and without Him nothing was made
that was made.
Come, let us sing for joy to the LORD;
let us shout to the Rock of our salvation!
2Let us enter His presence with thanksgiving;
let us make a joyful noise to Him in song.
3For the LORD is a great God,
a great King above all gods.
4In His hand are the depths of the earth,
and the mountain peaks belong to Him.
5The sea is His, for He made it,
and His hands formed the dry land.
6O come, let us worship and bow down;
let us kneel before the LORD our Maker.
7For He is our God,
and we are the people of His pasture,
the sheep under His care.
Today, if you hear His voice,
8do not harden your hearts...
Yon welkin pastures pale
Unveiling new today
On chariots of misted dale
The night is drawn away
…as mercy lights the wick
With hands of Perfect Will
And sets Love's gleaming candlestick
On heaven’s windowsill
Where time’s table is spread
With joy beyond compare
Because we are His people led
Through pastures of His care
Of all that may befall
Of all that we partake
The Maker and Giver of all
Will not His sheep forsake

Open to me the gates of righteousness,
that I may enter and give thanks to the LORD.
20This is the gate of the LORD;
the righteous shall enter through it.
21I will give You thanks, for You have answered me,
and You have become my salvation.
22The stone the builders rejected
has become the cornerstone.d
23This is from the LORD,
and it is marvelous in our eyes.e
24This is the day that the LORD has made;
we will rejoice and be glad in it.
