Thanks be unto the Lord

 

Psalm 100

1 Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth!
2 Serve the Lord with gladness!
Come into his presence with singing!

 3 Know that the Lord, he is God!
It is he who made us, and we are his;
we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

 4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving,
and his courts with praise!
Give thanks to him; bless his name!

 5 For the Lord is good;
his steadfast love endures forever,
and his faithfulness to all generations.
