1 In God the Lord be glad and light,
praise him throughout the earth;
Serve him, and come before his sight
with singing and with mirth.
2 Know that the Lord our God he is,
he did us make and keep,
Not we ourselves, for we are his
own flock and pasture sheep.
3 O go into his gates always,
give thanks within the same;
Within his courts set forth his praise,
and laud his holy Name.
4 For why? the goodness of the Lord
for evermore doth reign,
From age to age throughout the world
his truth doth still remain.
