Lyrics

Ye lands, to the Lord make a jubilant noise;
Glory be to God!
Oh, serve Him with joy,
In His presence now rejoice;
Sing praise unto God out of Zion!

Not we, but the Lord is our maker, our God;
Glory be to God!
His people we are,
And the sheep led by His rod;
Sing praise unto God out of Zion!

Oh, enter His gates with thanksgiving and praise;
Glory be to God!
To bless Him and thank Him
Our voices we will raise;
Sing praise unto God out of Zion!

For good is the Lord, and His mercy is sure;
Glory be to God!
To all generations
His truth shall endure;
Sing praise unto God out of Zion!
