1 All people that on earth do dwell,
Sing out your faith with cheerful voice;
Delight in God whose praise you tell,
Whose presence calls you to rejoice.
2 Know that there is one God, indeed,
Who fashions us without our aid,
Who claims us, give us all we need,
Whose tender care will never fade.
3 Enter the sacred gates with praise,
With joy approach the temple walls.
Extol and bless our God always
As people whom the Spirit calls.
4 Proclaim again that God is good,
Whose mercy is forever sure,
Whose truth at all times firmly stood,
and shall from age to age endure.
5 To Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
The God whom heav'n and earth adore,
From us and from the angel host
Be praise and glory evermore.
* Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;
Praise him, all creatures here below;
Praise him above, you heav'nly host:
Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
** Praise God, from whom all blessings flow.
Praise God, all creatures here below.
Creator, Savior, Spirit, praise,
In joyful song through all our days.
