St. Denio

1 O come, let us joyfully sing to the LORD; 

to the Rock of salvation let us raise our voice. 

2 Let us come before him expressing our thanks; 

Let us with loud singing praise him and rejoice. 

3 The LORD is the great God, King over all gods

4 The earth's deepest places he holds in his hand;

The heights of the mountain belong to the LORD

5 The oceans are his and he formed the dry land. 

6 Come, let us bow humbly and worship the LORD

Let us kneel before him, our Maker, in prayer. 

7 For we are his people and he is our God; 

He shepherds and feeds us in his loving care.  

Today if you hear and attend to his voice, 

8 Don't harden your hearts as you did on the way; 

in Meribah's desert you quarreled with me, 

You tested my patience at Massah that day. 

9 Your fathers provoked me and tested me there, 

Although they had witnessed the works I had done. 

10 With that generation for forty long years

My deep indignation continued to burn. 

I said, "They're a people whose hearts go astray;

They do not acknowledge that my ways are best." 

11 And so in my anger, I stated on oath, 

"I swear that they never shall enter my rest."
