Description: An SATB setting of Psalm 95 with organ and two trumpets. The trumpet part is attached as a separate pdf for sight reading convenience.

Enjoy!

Original text and translations may be found at Psalm 95.
O come let us sing to the Lord:
let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation.
Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving,
and make a joyful noise to him with psalms.
For the Lord is a great God, and a great king above all gods.
In his hand are the deep places of the earth: the strength of the hills is his also.
The sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land.
O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the Lord our maker.
For he is our God; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand.
