Psalm 95 - 2nd Version
ST. CYPRIAN | Bible Passage
JOHN GOSS, 1800-1880
1 O COME, let us sing to the Lord,
In God our salvation rejoice,
In psalms of thanksgiving record
His praise, with one spirit, one voice.
For Jehovah is king--and he reigns
The God of all gods on his throne;
The strength of the hills he maintains,
The ends of the earth are his own.
2 The sea is Jehovah's; he made
The fide its dominion to know:
The land is Jehovah's; he laid
Its solid foundations below.
O come let us worship and kneel
Before our Creator, our God;
The people who serve him with zeal,
The flock whom he guides with his rod.
3 To-day, if his voice ye will hear,
He speaks from above to you still;
'O turn not aside; but forbear
To harden your hearts to my will.
As once on the wilderness way
Of old my long-suffering you tried;
The day of temptation, the day
When God's righteous wrath ye defied.
4 'Your fathers against me rebelled;
And forty years long was I grieved,
My works while they daily beheld,
But, tempting their God, disbelieved.
Their heart had from me gone astray,
And I sware in my wrath, that unblest
The people that knew not my way
Should ne'er enter into my rest.'
1 ¬∂ O come, let us sing unto the LORD: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation.
2 Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms.
3 For the LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods.
4 In his hand are the deep places of the earth: the strength of the hills is his also.
5 The sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land.
6 O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker.
7 ¬∂ For he is our God; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. To day if ye will hear his voice,
8 Harden not your heart, 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 work.
10 Forty years long was I grieved with this generation, and said, It is a people that do err in their heart, and they have not known my ways:
11 Unto whom I sware in my wrath that they should not enter into my rest.
