"Let"

Question-
Psalm 5:11- But "let" all them who take refuge in you be glad, "let" them sing for joy;

Why does the pslamist here use the word "let", when, if you were to take refuge in Him, you'd think you'd be glad anyway? You think singing for Joy (aka praising Him[I'm guessing])would be the point. I mean, if you were in front of a clown, you wouldn't say "let me laugh", would you?

I always read this in the same way as I read Genesis. Let the be light, and there was light. So, Let them be glad, and they were glad.
