O Come before the LORD, Our King
- O come before the LORD, our King,
and in his presence let us sing;
let us in glad and joyful lays
the rock of our salvation praise;
before him come with thankful song,
in joyful psalms his praise prolong.
- Almighty pow’r the LORD maintains,
exalted over all he reigns;
he holds the valleys in his hand,
he makes the mighty mountains stand;
to him belong both land and sea,
Creator of the world is he.
- O come and let us worship now,
before our Maker let us bow;
we are his sheep and he our God,
he feeds our souls in pastures broad;
he safely leads us in the way;
O come and hear his voice today.
- Take heed and harden not your heart
as did your fathers, nor depart
from God to follow in their ways;
for with complaints instead of praise,
with doubt instead of faith confessed,
they put his mercy to the test.
- Take heed that you provoke him not,
as did your fathers, who forgot,
with erring heart, God’s holy ways
and grieved him all their sinful days;
to whom in wrath the LORD declared:
“My promised rest they shall not share.”
