Lyrics:

Refrain: All the earth proclaim the Lord; Sing your praise to God.

1. Serve you the Lord, heart filled with gladness.
Come into God's presence singing for joy!

2. Know that the Lord is our creator.
Yes, God is our Father; we are his own.

3. We are the sheep of the green pasture;
For we are God's people, chosen by God.

4. Come to the gates bringing thanksgiving;
O enter the courtyards singing in praise.

5. Our Lord is good, with love enduring;
God's word is abiding now with us all.

6. Honor and praise be to the Father,
The Son and the Spirit, world without end.
