All ye gentiles, praise the Lord,
All ye lands, your voices raise;
Heaven and earth, with loud accord,
Praise the Lord, for ever praise.
For His truth and mercy stand,
Past, and present, and to be,
Like the years of His right hand,
Like His own eternity.
Praise Him, ye who know his love,
Praise Him from the depths beneath,
Praise Him in the heights above;
Praise your Maker all that breathe.
Sacred Poems and Hymns
All ye Gentiles, praise the Lord. J. Montgomery. [Ps. cxvii.] First published in his Songs of Zion, 1822, in 3 stanzas of 4 lines, and again in his Original Hymns, 1853, p. 91, where it is entitled, "Exhortation to Universal Praise and Thanksgiving." It is sometimes given as:—"All ye nations, praise the Lord,” in both English and American hymnals. It was introduced into congregational use at an early date, and has attained to a fair position.
-- John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907)
