"Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands. Serve the Lord with gladness; come before His presence with singing. Know ye that the Lord He
is God; it is He that hath made us, and not we ourselves. We are His people, and the sheep of
His pasture. Enter into HIs gates with
thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise; be thankful unto Him, and bless His name. For the Lord is good, His mercy is everlasting, and His truth endureth to all generations."
