1 Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all you lands (Heb. the land, Israel in the land).
2 Serve the LORD with gladness:
Come before His presence with singing.
3 Know you that the LORD He is God:
It is He that has made us, and not we ourselves;
We are His people, and the sheep of His pasture.
4 Enter into His gates with thanksgiving,
And into His courts with praise:
Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.
5 For the LORD is good (cp.s. 95:3, "great"); His loving-kindness (or grace) is everlasting;
And His truth endures to all generations.
