1 O come, let us sing to the Lord;
let us heartily rejoice in the rock of our salvation.
2 Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving
and be 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 the depths of the earth
and the heights of the mountains are his also.
5 The sea is his, for he made it,
and his hands have moulded the dry land.
6 Come, let us worship and bow down
and kneel before the Lord our Maker.
7 For he is our God;
we are the people of his pasture and the sheep of his hand.
8 O that today you would listen to his voice:
Harden not your hearts as at Meribah,
on that day at Massah in the wilderness,
9 When your forebears tested me, and put me to the proof,
though they had seen my works.
10 Forty years long I detested that generation and said,
This people are wayward in their hearts;
they do not know my ways.
11 So I swore in my wrath,
They shall not enter into my rest.
