Sing to the Lord, the rock of our sal­va­tion!
Sing to the Lord a song of joy and praise!
Kneel in His pre­sence, low­ly in thanks­giv­ing!
The lof­ty psalm up­raise!

The land and sea are His, for He has made them,
The val­leys of the earth, its rug­ged hills;
Cornland and vine­yards and the ol­ive or­chards,
All these His mer­cy fills.

And we, His peo­ple, sheep of His own pas­ture,
Lambs of His bo­som, whom His hand has fed,
Shall we not heark­en to our kind­ly shep­herd
By whom our feet are led?

Oh, hard­en not your hearts, like those who wan­dered
The de­sert for­ty years to Jor­dan’s strand;
Humble and com­fort­ed, O chos­en peo­ple,
Enter the pro­mised land.
