O COME, let us sing unto the Lord : let us heartily rejoice in the strength of our salvation.
2 Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving : and shew ourselves glad in him with psalms.
3 For the Lord is a great God : and a great King above all gods.
4 In his hand are all the corners of the earth : and the strength of the hills is his also.
5 The sea is his, and he made it : and his hands prepared the dry land.
6 O come, let us worship and fall down : and kneel before the Lord our Maker.
7 For he is the Lord our God : and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand.
8 To-day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts : as in the provocation, and as in the day of temptation in the wilderness.
9 When your fathers tempted me : proved me, and saw my works.
10 Forty years long was I grieved with this generation, and said : It is a people that do err in their hearts, for they have not known my ways;
11 Unto whom I sware in my wrath : that they should not enter into my rest.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son : and to the Holy Ghost;
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be : world without end. Amen.
