28. Now Let All Loudly Sing Praise

1 Now let all loudly
Sing praise to God the Lord;
Christendom, proudly
Laud Him with one accord.
Gently He bids thee come before Him;
Haste, then, O Israel, now adore Him;
Haste, then, O Israel, now adore Him.

2 For the Lord reigneth
Over the universe,
All He sustaineth,
All things His praise rehearse,
The angel host His glory telling,
Psalter and harp are the anthem swelling;
Psalter and harp are the anthem swelling.

3 Come, heathen races,
Cast off all grief and cares,
For pleasant places
Your Savior doth prepare,
Where His blest Word abroad is sounded,
Pardon for sinners and grace unbounded;
Pardon for sinners and grace unbounded.

4 Richly He feeds us
Always and everywhere;
Gently He leads us
With a true father's care;
The late and early rains He sends us;
Daily his blessing, his love, attends us;
Daily his blessing, his love, attends us.

5 Sing we His praises
Who is thus merciful;
Christendom raises
Songs to His glorious rule.
Rejoice! No foe shall now alarm us;
He will protect us, and who can harm us?
He will protect us, and who can harm us?

Amen.
