All people that on earth do dwell,
Sing to the Lord with cheerful voice:
Him serve with mirth,
His praise forth tell,
Come ye before Him and rejoice.
Know that the Lord is God indeed,
Without our aid He did us make:
We are His flock. He doth us feed,
And for His sheep He doth us take.
Oh, enter then His gates with praise,
Approach with joy His courts unto:
and bless His name always,
For it is seemly so to do.
For why ? the Lord our God is good,
His mercy is for ever sure;
His truth at all times firmly stood,
And shall from age to age endure.
