Jubilate Deo!
Jubilate Deo omnis terra!
O be joyful! Serve the Lord with gladness;
Come before his presence with a song.
Know this: the Lord himself is God;
he himself has made us, and we are his.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving, into his courts with praise!
For the Lord is good;
his mercy everlasting;
his faithfulness endures from age to age.
Jubilate Deo!
