A psalm of thanksgiving.
1Shout with joy to the lord, all the earth!
2Worship the lord with gladness.
Come before him, singing with joy.
3Acknowledge that the lord is God!
He made us, and we are his.# As in an alternate reading in the Masoretic Text; the other alternate and some ancient versions read and not we ourselves.
We are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
4Enter his gates with thanksgiving;
go into his courts with praise.
Give thanks to him and praise his name.
5For the lord is good.
His unfailing love continues forever,
and his faithfulness continues to each generation.
