Verse 1Ye nations round the earth, rejoice
Before the Lord, your sovereign King,
Serve him with cheerful heart and voice;
With all your tongues his glory sing.
Verse 2The Lord is God; 'tis he alone
Doth life and breath and being gibe;
We are his work, and not our own;
The sheep that on his pastures live.
Verse 3Enter his gated with songs of joy,
With praises to his courts repair;
And make it your divine employ
To pay your thanks and honours there.
Verse 4The Lord is goods the Lord is kind;
Great is his grace, his mercy sure;
And the whole race of man shall find
His truth from age to age endure.
