PSALM 66:1-12
METER:  65 65 65 65 65 65
SUGGESTED TUNE:  ST. GERTRUDE
This is the tune for such hymns as "Onward, Christian Soldiers."

1.  Joy-ful noise make to God,
    All that are on earth.
    Sing his name's great glo-ry,
    Give him glor-ious praise.
    Say, "How great your deeds are,
    Be-cause of your pow'r
    En-e-mies be-fore you
    Cringe and bow in fear.
    All the earth gives wor-ship,
    Wor-ship to you, God.
    They sing prais-es to you,
    Prais-es to your name."
2.  Come and see, O peo-ple,
    What our God has done;
    Awe-some are his mar-vels
    Done for mor-tal ones.
    He turned sea to dry land,
    Riv-ers they walked through.
    There we re-joiced in him--
    He who by his might
    Rules forever, keep-ing
    Watch on na-tions all
    So that the re-bel-lious
    Don't ex-alt them-selves.
3.  Bless our God, all peo-ples,
    Let your praise be heard.
    He has kept us liv-ing
    And not let us fall.
    God, we have been test-ed,
    Pur-i-fied by fire;
    We have been en-trapped, and
    Giv-en heavy loads.
    You let foes ride o'er us;
    We've known fire and flood;
    But now you have brought us
    To a boun-teous place.
