Let us sing for joy to the Lord,
Let us shout out our praises;
A protector has not ignored,
Delivering His embraces.
Let us enter with thanksgiving,
Let us shout with celebration;
For He is always forgiving,
Presenting us His salvation.
Because the Lord is a great God,
Superior and a great King;
That is why we honor and laud,
For goodness and mercy to bring.
The depths of earth are in His hand,
The mountain peaks are of His own;
The seas obeying His command,
While He sits upon His throne.
For His hands had formed the dry land,
Separated from depths of sea;
From rough shores to beaches of sand,
While the waves are flowing free.
Let us bow down and worship God,
Let us kneel before our Lord;
Let us praise to honor and laud,
As we remain in one accord.
We are His people just like sheep,
He is God as our shepherd;
Watching over us as we sleep,
And as He guides us with His Word.
If only that you would obey,
Come to Him when His voice you hear;
Instead of wandering to stray,
And not attempting to revere.
Because for many I had grieved,
Making a vow in my anger;
Building faith that I believed,
He consoled for me to languor.
