Chorus:

Make a joyful noise to the Lord
Sing out for all He’s worth

His love endures forever
So shout O all the earth!

Verse 1:

Let’s serve Lord Jehovah in gladness
Come into His presence in song
Jehovah God has made us
We're sheep and to Him we belong
  

Chorus

Verse 2:

Come, enter His gates with your praises
Give thanks to Jehovah's name
His faithfulness continues
To each generation the same.

I love it. I would personally drop "Jehovah" from the first line of Verse 1. It makes the words on the line fit better and makes Jehova on the third line more special. Add the before Lord. "Let's serve the Lord in gladness." Chorus is sweet and simple! You should totally write a few more verses!

O shout to the Lord all the earth
Bring forth your joyful songs
Come worship Him with gla--adness   (“glad” held two notes)
All our praise to Him belongs

Rejoice O all you lands.

Come through His gates with thankfulness
Into His courts with praise
Extol the Lord and bless His name.
With grateful voices raised

His faithfulness extends
