||*May be sung as a canon.|Text Information:
The Latin text here, for which the musical setting was originally composed, is from Psalm 100:1. The English paraphrase gives this verse a Christian interpretation, much as Isaac Watts did when he paraphrased Psalm 98 to produce “Joy to the World! The Lord Is Come” (see no. 134).
