Venite, exultemus Domino

1 O come, let us sing out to the Lord;*
let us shout in triumph to the rock of our salvation.
2 Let us come before his face with thanksgiving,*
and cry out to him joyfully in 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 peaks of the mountains are his also.
5 The sea is his and he made it;*
his hands moulded dry land.
6 Come, let us worship and bow down,*
and kneel before the Lord our maker.
7 For he is the Lord our God;*
we are his people and the sheep of his pasture.
8 If only you would hear his voice today:*
for he comes to judge the earth.
9 He shall judge the world with righteousness,*
and the peoples with his truth.
