Song background:

An original anthem for Mixed Voices and Organ combining Psalm 95 (v.1-3, 6-7) and Psalm 96 (v.1-2, 11-13); plus The Sacrifices of God (Psalm 57, v.17) included in the score as an optional introductory Choral Response.

THE SACRIFICES OF GOD (Not included in the recording)
The Sacrifices of God are a broken spirit.
A broken and a contrite heart, O God, Thou wilt not despise.

O COME, LET US SING
O come let us sing unto the Lord;
Let us make a joyful noise
To the rock of our salvation.

Let us come before His presence
With thanksgiving,
And make a joyful noise unto Him with psalms.
For the Lord is a great God,
And a great King above all gods.

O come, let us worship and bow down;
Let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker.
For He is our God, and we are
The people of His pasture,
And the sheep of His hand.

O sing unto the Lord a new song:
Sing unto the Lord, all the earth.
Sing unto the Lord, bless His name;
Show forth His salvation from day to day.

Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad;
Let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof.
Let the field be joyful, and all that is therein.
Then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice
Before the Lord: For He cometh.

For He cometh to judge the earth:
He shall judge the world with righteousness,
And His people with His truth.

Lyrics: THE SACRIFICES OF GOD

The Sacrifices of God are a broken spirit.
A broken and a contrite heart, O God, Thou wilt not despise.

O COME, LET US SING

O come let us sing unto the Lord;
Let us make a joyful noise
To the rock of our salvation.
Let us come before His presence
With thanksgiving,
And make a joyful noise unto Him with psalms.
For the Lord is a great God,
And a great King above all gods.

O come, let us worship and bow down;
Let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker.
For He is our God, and we are
The people of His pasture,
And the sheep of His hand.

O sing unto the Lord a new song:
Sing unto the Lord, all the earth.
Sing unto the Lord, bless His name;
Show forth His salvation from day to day.

Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad;
Let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof.
Let the field be joyful, and all that is therein.
Then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice
Before the Lord: For He cometh.

For He cometh to judge the earth:
He shall judge the world with righteousness,
And His people with His truth.
