Feith, Rhijnvis, a Minister of the Dutch Reformed Church at Zwolle, in Holland. His hymn "Looftden Koning, alle Volken" appeared in the Evangelische Gezangen bij Godsdienst in de Nederlandsche Hervormde Gemeenten, 1806 (p. 1528, ii.). This hymn was translated on January 10, 1828, by J. Montgomery (M. MSS), as "Praise the Lord through every nation," and so far as we can trace, was first published in his Original Hymns, 1853, p. 136, as a hymn for Ascension Day, and headed, “Paraphrased, in the original metre, from a Dutch Hymn." In 1855 it was included in Mercer's Church Psalter & Hymn Book, No. 122, and later in many collections.
