Psalm 95. 1 Oh, come, let us sing un- | to the | Lord ; || Let us heartily rejoice in the strength

of our sal- | vation. 2 Let us come before his presence with thanks- I giving; || And show ourselves glad

in him with psalms. 3 For the Lord is a great- | God; || And a great | King a- | bove all | gods. 4. In his hands are all the corners of the earth ; || and the strength of the hills is

his — | also. 5 The sea is his / and he | made it ; || And his hands pre- | pared — | the dry | land. 6 Oh, come, let us worship I and fall | down ; || And kneel be- | fore the Lord our |

Maker. 7 For he is the Lord our | God; || And we are the people of his pasture, and the

sheep of his — | hand. 8 Oh, worship the Lord in the beauty" of holiness ; || Let the whole / earth stand

in | awe of him. *9 For he cometh, for he cometh to judge the earth; || And with righteousness to

judge the world, and the people with his truth. 10 Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, || And to the Holy | Ghost ; 11 As it was in the beginning, is now, and | ever • shall | be, || World without I end.
