93. Let All the World in Every Corner Sing

Antiphon:
Let all the world in every corner sing:
my God and King!

1 The heavens are not too high,
God's praise may thither fly;
the earth is not too low,
God's praises there may grow. [Antiphon]

2 The church with psalms must shout,
no door can keep them out.
But, more than all,
the heart must bear the longest part. [Antiphon]
