The Heights of The Mountains Are His

Intro

95 Oh come, let us sing to the LORD;

let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation!

2  Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving;

let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise!

3  For the LORD is a great God,

and a great King above all gods.

4  In his hand are the depths of the earth;

the heights of the mountains are his also.

5  The sea is his, for he made it,

and his hands formed the dry land.

6  Oh come, let us worship and bow down;

let us kneel before the LORD, our Maker!

7  For he is our God,

and we are the people of his pasture,

and the sheep of his hand. (Ps 95:1–7)
