One: Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth!
All: Joy! Joy! Joy!
One: Break forth into joyous song and sing praises.
Choir: Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia! [GtG #236: The Strife is O’er]
One: Sing praises to the Lord with the lyre!
All: We would, but what sound does a lyre make?
One: With trumpets and the sound of the horn make a joyful noise before the King, the Lord.
All: We know that one: toot, toot, toot!
One: Let the sea roar, and all that fills it.
One: Let the floods clap their hands!
One: Let the hills sing together for joy!
Choir: I’ve got the joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart. Where? Down in my heart. Where? Down in my heart. I’ve got the joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart. Where? Down in my heart to stay!
One: Christ is Risen! Let us worship God.
