"This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it." (Psalm 118:24 KJV)

This is the day, this is the day
That the Lord has made, that the Lord has made
We will rejoice, (we will rejoice)
And be glad in it (and be glad in it)

This is the day that the Lord has made
We will rejoice and be glad in it
This is the day, this is the day
That the Lord has made.

This is the week, this is the week
Of the devil’s defeat, of the devil’s defeat
We will rejoice, (we will rejoice)
And be glad in it (and be glad in it)

This is the week of the devil’s defeat
We will rejoice and be glad in it
This is the week, this is the week
That the Lord has made.

This is the month, this is the month
Of the Lord’s triumph, of the Lord’s triumph
We will rejoice, (we will rejoice)
And be glad in it (and be glad in it)

This is the month of the Lord’s triumph
We will rejoice and be glad in it
This is the month, this is the month
That the Lord has made.

This is the year, this is the year
That the Lord may appear, that the Lord may appear
We will rejoice, (we will rejoice)
And be glad in it (and be glad in it)

This is the year that the Lord may appear
We will rejoice and be glad in it
This is the year, this is the year
That the Lord has made.

The Story Behind This Is The Day That The Lord Has Made

Read the Bible verses of Psalm 118:24-29, 

"This is the day that the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. Save us, we pray, O LORD! O LORD, we pray, give us success! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the LORD! We bless you from the house of the LORD. The LORD is God, and he has made his light to shine upon us. Bind the festal sacrifice with cords, up to the horns of the altar! You are my God, and I will give thanks to you; you are my God; I will extol you. Oh give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever!"
