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."
