Ps.95:1  O come, let us sing unto the Lord: let us heartily rejoice in the strength of our salvation.
Ps.95:2  Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving: and shew ourselves glad in him with psalms.
Ps.95:3  For the Lord is a great God: and a great King above all gods.

And now, on this our festal day,
Thy bounteous hand confessing,
Upon Thine Altar, Lord, we lay
The first-fruits of Thy blessing.
By Thee the souls of men are fed
With gifts of grace supernal;
Thou who dost give us earthly bread,
Give us the Bread Eternal.

Ps.113:2  Blessed be the Name of the Lord: from this time forth for evermore.
106:1  O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is gracious: and his mercy endureth for ever.
