All from the sun's uprise

Representative Text

All, from the sun’s uprise
Unto his setting rays,
Resound in jubilees
The great Creator’s praise!
Him serve alone;
In triumph bring
Your gifts, and sing
Before His throne!

Man drew from man his birth;
But God his noble frame,
(Built of the ruddy earth,)
Filled with celestial flame.
His sons we are,
By Him are led,
Preserved and fed
With tender care.

Then to His portals press
In your divine resorts;
With thanks His power profess,
And praise Him in His courts.
How good! how pure!
His mercies last;
His promise past
Is ever sure.

For some years he devoted himself to travelling in Europe and Asia, and published in 1615 a curious account of his experiences. After visiting America, where he was for a time the Treasurer of the British Colony of Virginia, he became, on his return, a Gentleman of the Privy Chamber of Charles I. He died at Bexley Abbey, Kent, March 1643. His publications included his Traveller's Thanksgiving; the prose work on his travels, A Relation of a journey begun in 1610, &c, 1615; a translation of the Metamorphoses of Ovid; and Grotius's tragedy of Christ's Passion.

All from the sun's uprise. G. Sandys. [Ps. c.] This spirited and somewhat quaint rendering of Psalm 100 appeared in his Paraphrase upon the Psalms of David, 1636, and 1640, pp. 120-21: and again, as a part of his Paraphrase upon the Divine Poems, 1638 and 1640, in 3 stanzas of 8 lines. It was also repeated in a beautiful edition of the Paraphrase of the Psalmes, 1648 [Brit. Mus.], and again in an edition by the Rev. Richard Hooper. As given in Martineau's earlier Hymns, &c, 1840, and in his later Hymns of Praise and Prayer, 1873, it is unaltered.

The harmonization dates from the ninete…
