  let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation.                            
Let us come before Him with thanksgiving                                      
  and extol Him with music and song.                                          
                                                                               
For the Lord is the great God,                                                
  the great King above all gods.                                              
In His hand are the depths of the earth,                                      
  and the mountain peaks belong to Him.                                       
The sea is His, for He made it,                                               
  and His hands formed the dry land.                                          
                                                                               
Come, let us bow down in worship,                                             
  let us kneel before the Lord our Maker;                                     
for He is our God                                                             
  and we are the people of His pasture,                                       
  the flock under His care.                                                   
                                                                               
Today, if you hear His voice,                                                 
  do not harden your hearts.
