1 Chronicles 16:31-36
"(31) Let the heavens be glad, and the earth rejoice! Tell all the nations, 'The Lord reigns!' (32) Let the sea and everything in it shout his praise! Let the fields and their crops burst out with joy! (33) Let the trees of the forest sing for joy before the Lord, for he is coming to judge the earth. (34) Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good! His faithful love endures forever. (35) Cry out, 'Save us, O God of our salvation! Gather and rescue us from among the nations, so we can thank your holy name and rejoice and praise you.' (36) Praise to the Lord, the God of Israel, who lives from everlasting to everlasting! And all the people shouted 'Amen!' and praised the Lord."
