1. Jubilate Deo...
(Choir)
Jubilate Deo, omnis terra;
servite Domino in laetitia.
Introite in conspectu ejus in exsultatione.
Scitote quoniam Dominus ipse est Deus;
ipse fecit nos, et non ipsi nos:
populus ejus, et oves pascuae ejus.
Introite portas ejus in confessione;
atria ejus in hymnis: confitemini illi.
Laudate nomen ejus,
quoniam suavis est Dominus:
in aeternum misericordia ejus,
et usque in generationem
et generationem veritas ejus.
O be joyful in the Lord, all ye lands:
serve the Lord with gladness,
and come before his presence with a song.
Be ye sure that the Lord he is God;
it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves;
we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
O go your way into his gates with thanksgiving,
and into his courts with praise;
be thankful unto him,
and speak good of his name.
For the Lord is gracious,
his mercy is everlasting;
and his truth endureth from generation
to generation.
(Psalm 100, Latin Vulgate)

2. Ve adthdor vador (From age to age)
(Soloists and choir)

Bless his name. For the Lord is gracious, his mercy is
everlasting, and his truth endures from age to age.

3. Ta cao chang de yang (The sheep of his pasture)
(Solo and choir)

It is he that has made us, and not we ourselves;
we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.
(From Psalms 100:3 and 23:1, Mandarin Chinese)

4. Ngokujabula! (With great rejoicing!)
(Choir)
Hlokoma kuJehova ngezwi lokuhalalisa, mhlaba
wonke. Mkhonzeni uJehova ngokujabula, nisondele
ebusweni bakhe ngokuhuba kwentokozo. Yazini
ukuthi uJehova unguNkulunkulu!
Shout with triumph to the Lord, all the earth! Serve the
Lord with joy, come before his presence with singing.
Know that the Lord is God! (From Psalm 100:1-3, Zulu)

Entrad por sus puertas con acción de gracias, a sus
