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.

Montgomery, James, son of John Montgomery, a Moravian minister, was born at Irvine, Ayrshire, Nov. 4, 1771. In 1776 he removed with his parents to the Moravian Settlement at Gracehill, near Ballymena, county of Antrim. Two years after he was sent to the Fulneck Seminary, Yorkshire.

Notes

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)
