Shout with joy to the Lord, all the earth!
Worship the Lord with gladness.
Come before God, singing with joy.
Acknowledge that the Lord is God!
God made us, and we belong to God.
We are God’s people, the sheep of God’s pasture.
Enter these gates with thanksgiving;
go into these courts with praise.
Give thanks to God and praise God’s name.
For the Lord is good.
God’s unfailing love continues forever,
and God’s faithfulness continues to each generation.

In Jesus’ Name.
