Psalm 95

Refrain:    Come, let us worship and bow down.

1    O come, let us sing to the Lord;  

let us heartily rejoice in the rock of our salvation.

2    Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving  

and be glad in him with psalms.

3    For the Lord is a great God  

and a great king above all gods. [R]

4    In his hand are the depths of the earth  

and the heights of the mountains are his also.

5    The sea is his, for he made it,  

and his hands have moulded the dry land.

6    Come, let us worship and bow down  

and kneel before the Lord our Maker.

7    For he is our God;  

we are the people of his pasture and the sheep of his hand. [R]

8    O that today you would listen to his voice:  

‘Harden not your hearts as at Meribah,

on that day at Massah in the wilderness,

9    ‘When your forebears tested me, and put me to the proof,  

though they had seen my works.

10  ‘Forty years long I detested that generation and said,  

“This people are wayward in their hearts;

they do not know my ways.”

11  ‘So I swore in my wrath,  

“They shall not enter into my rest.”’

Refrain:    Come, let us worship and bow down.

Lord God, the maker of all,

as we bow down in praise this day,

make us attentive to your voice

and do not test us beyond our enduring;

through Jesus Christ our Lord.
