1 All people that on earth do dwell,
sing to the Lord with cheerful voice;
him serve with fear, his praise forth tell,
come ye before Him and rejoice.
2 The Lord you know is God indeed;
without our aid he did us make;
we are His folk, 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 for ever sure;
his truth at all times firmly stood,
and shall from age to age endure.
