Text:Omnes gentes
Author:J. H.

24a. Omnes gentes

1 Ye people all with one accord,
clap hands and eke rejoyce:
Be glad and sing unto the Lord.
with sweet and pleasant voice.
2 For high the Lord and dreadfull is
his wonders manifold:
A mighty King he is truly
in all the earth extold.

3 The people shall he make to be
unto our bondage thrall:
And underneath our feet he shall
the nations make to fall.
4 For us the heritage he chose.
which we possesse alone:
The flourishing worship of Jacob
his well beloved one.

5 Our God ascended up on high,
with joy and pleasant noise:
The Lord goes up above the skie,
with trumpets royall voice.
6 Sing praises to our God, sing praise,
sing praises to our King:
7 For God is King of all the earth,
all skilful praises sing.

8 God om the heathen raignes, and sits
upon his holy throne:
The Princes of the people have
them joyned every one.
9 To Abrahams people, for our God
which is exalted hie,
As with a buckler doth defend
the earth continually.
