1 Come with all joy to sing to God
our saving rock, the living Lord;
in glad thanksgiving seek his face
with songs of victory and grace.

2 In holiness and light arrayed
above all gods that we have made
he is the one almighty King,
and his the glory that we sing.

3 The earth is his from east to west,
from ocean - floor to mountain - crest;
he made the seas and formed the lands,
he shaped the islands by his hands.

4 Come near to worship! come with faith,
bow down to him who gives us breath:
God is our shepherd, he alone;
we are his people, all his own.

5 But if you hear his voice today
do not reject what he will say:
when Israel wandered from God's path
they suffered forty years of wrath.

6 That generation went astray,
they did not want to know his way;
they put their Saviour to the test,
and saw his power, but lost their rest.

7 So to the God of earth and heaven,
the Father, Spirit, Son, be given
praise now, as praise has ever been
and ever shall be praise - Amen!
