An Exhortation to Thanksgiving
A Psalm of praise.
1Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands.
2Serve the Lord with gladness:
come before his presence with singing.
3Know ye that the Lord he is God:
it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves;#100.3 and not we ourselves or and his we are.
we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
4Enter into his gates with thanksgiving,
and into his courts with praise:
be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

his mercy is everlasting;
and his truth endureth to all generations.
