Venite, exultemus Domino

1    O come, let us sing unto the Lord :

let us heartily rejoice in the strength of our salvation.

2    Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving :

and shew ourselves glad in him with psalms.

3    For the Lord is a great God :

and a great King above all gods.

4    In his hand 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 prepared the dry land.

6    O come, let us worship, and fall down :

and kneel before 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   Today if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts :

as in the provocation,

    and as in the day of temptation in the wilderness;

9    When your fathers tempted me :

proved me, and saw my works.

10  Forty years long was I grieved with this generation, and said :

It is a people that do err in their hearts,

    for they have not known my ways.

11  Unto whom I sware in my wrath :

that they should not enter into my rest.]

Psalm 95

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son :

and to the Holy Ghost;

as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be :

world without end. Amen.
