All people that LIVE HERE ON earth,
Sing to the Lord with cheerful voice;
SERVE Him with AWE, PROCLAIM HIS WORTH;
Come NOW before him and rejoice.
The Lord, YOU know, is God indeed:
Without our aid He did us make;
We are His flock, He DOES us feed,
And for His sheep He DOES us take.
The Lord IS GOD, AND REIGNS ABOVE:
Without our aid He MADE EACH ONE;
We are His flock, He SHOWS US LOVE,
And for US ALL He SENT HIS SON.
O enter then His gates with praise,
Approach HIS COURTS WITH JOY AND SING;
Praise, GLORIFY His name always;
THIS is A RIGHT AND FITTING THING.
For why? The Lord our God is good;
His mercy is forever sure;
His truth at all times firmly stood,
And shall from age to age endure.
Praise God from whom all blessing flow.
Praise Him all creatures here below.
Praise Him above YOU heavenly host!
Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost!
