1 Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth.
Bring your silence and your shouting,
As introverts and extroverts.
2 Worship the LORD with gladness;
Come into his presence with singing.
Bring your songs and your stories,
Your struggles and your sacrifices.
3 Know that the LORD is God.
It is he that made us, and we are his; we are his people,
And the sheep of his pasture.
He designed and created us,
He understands us and is intensely interested in us.
4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving,
and his courts with praise. Give thanks to him, bless his name.
Bring your gifts and your personalities,
Your strengths and weaknesses.
5 For the LORD is good;
his steadfast love endures forever,
And his faithfulness to all generations.
He is just and wise,
Honest and true,
Caring and compassionate,
Eternal and Holy, He is God.
