 1  O Come let us lift up our voice,
       and sing unto the Lord;
    In him our rock of health rejoice
       let us with one accord:

 2  Yea, let us come before his face
       to give him thanks and praise 
    In singing psalms unto his grace
       let us be glad always.

 3  For why? the Lord he is no doubt
       a great and mighty God!
    A King above all gods throughout,
       in all, the world abroad.

 4  The secrets of the earth so deep,
       and corners of the land,
    The tops of hills that are most steep,
       he holds them in his hand:

 5  The sea and waters all are his,
       for he the same hath wrought:
    The earth and all that therein is
       his band hath made of nought.

 6  Come, let us bow and praise the Lord,
       before him let us fall,
    And kneel to him with one accord,
       for he hath made us all.

 7  For why? he is the Lord our God,
      for us he doth provide;
    We are his flock, he doth us feed,
       his sheep, and he our guide.

 8  To-day if ye his voice will hear,
       then harden not your heart,
    As ye with grudging many a year
       provoked him in desert;

 9  Whereas your fathers tempted me,
       my power for to prove;
    My wondrous works when they did see,
       yet still they would me move.

10  Twice twenty years they did me grieve,
       which caus-ed me to say,
    They err in heart, nor will believe,
       they have not known my way.

11  Wherefore I sware, when that my wrath 
       was kindled in my breast
    That they should never tread the path 
       to enter in my rest.
