1. All people that on earth do dwell,
    sing to the Lord with cheerful voice.
    Him serve with mirth, his praise forth tell;
    come ye before him and rejoice.
  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.
  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 forever sure;
    his truth at all times firmly stood,
    and shall from age to age endure.
