Lyrics

Refrain

Sing, believers!
Give thanks for those whose joy is the Lord.

The earth belongs to the Lord,
And all that we enjoy,
A strong foundation was laid,
Was laid within the seas.

Refrain

O tell us, who shall ascend?
Who shall go up to God’s house?
It is those who love the Lord,
Who make God’s will their own.

Refrain

O tell us, who are these saints,
These saints who praise God’s name?
It is those whose hearts are clean,
Whose joy is in the Lord.

Refrain

O come, and praise the Lord,
And serve the world God made,
Whose love is ever sure:
O praise God’s holy name.
