Shout joyfully to the Lord all the earth! Serve the Lord with gladness; come before Him with joyful singing. Know that the Lord is God. It is He who made us and we are His, the sheep of His pasture. Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him and praise His name. For the Lord is good and His love endures forever; His faithfulness continues through all generations. ~ Psalm 100
