O come and sing to the God, the Lord,
To Him our voic­es raise;
Let us in our most joy­ful songs
The Lord, our Sav­ior, praise.

Before His pre­sence let us come
With praise and thank­ful voice;
Let us sing joy­ful psalms to Him,
With grate­ful hearts re­joice.

The Lord Our God is King of kings,
Above all gods His throne;
The depths of earth are in His hand,
The mount­ains are His own.

To Him the spa­cious sea be­longs,
He made its waves and tides;
And by His hand the ris­ing land
Was formed and still abides.

O come and, bow­ing down to Him,
Our wor­ship let us bring;
O let us praise the gra­cious Lord,
Our ma­ker and our king.

A version from the 1650 Scot­tish Psal­ter:

O come, let us sing to the Lord,
To Him our voic­es raise;
With joy­ful noise let us the rock
Of our sal­va­tion praise.

Let us before His pre­sence come
With praise, and thank­ful voice;
Let us sing psalms to Him with grace,
And make a joy­ful noise.

For God’s a great God, and great king;
Above all gods He is.
The depths of earth are in His hands;
The heights of hills are His.

To Him the spa­cious sea belongs,
For He the same did make;
The dry land also from His hands
Its form at first did take.

O come, and let us wor­ship Him;
Let us bow down with­al,
And on our knees be­fore the Lord,
Our mak­er, let us fall.
