1 All people that on earth do dwell,
sing to the Lord with cheerful voice;
Him serve with fear, His praise forthtell;
come ye before Him and rejoice.
2 The Lord, ye know, 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.
3 O enter then His gates with praise,
approach with joy His courts unto;
praise, laud, and bless His name always,
for it is seemly so to do.
4 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.
5 Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;
praise Him, all creatures here below;
praise Him above, ye heavenly host;
praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
