*Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth! Serve the Lord with gladness! Come into his presence with singing! *
*Know that the Lord, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. *
Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name! For the Lord is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations.
Let our praises rise like incense, reaching the heavens and intertwining with the eternal chorus of gratitude. Praise be to God for the unending grace that sustains us, the forgiveness that redeems us, and the promise of a future filled with hope.
