Original text and translations
1. Come, let us sing to God on high,
The Rock of our salvation praise;
Come with thanksgiving to his courts
And joyful psalms before him raise.
2. For God is Lord above all gods,
The heights and detphs are in his hand;
He made the sea and it is his,
His hands have molded the dry land.
3. Let us bow down and worship him
Who is our maker and our Lord;
We are his people and his sheep;
Today, then, hearken to his Word.
