All People That on Earth Do Dwell

William Kethe, 1561
[Key: E]

Verse 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.

Verse 2
Know that the Lord 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.

Verse 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.

Verse 4
Oh know 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.

Verse 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.
