Representative Text

1 Come, all ye people, bless our God
and tell his glorious praise abroad,
who holds our souls in life,
who never lets our feet be moved
and, though our faith he oft has proved,
upholds us in the strife.

2 We come with off'rings to his house,
and here we pay the solemn vows
we uttered in distress;
to him our all we dedicate,
to him we wholly consecrate
the lives his mercies bless.

3 Come, hear, all ye who fear the Lord,
while I with grateful heart record
what God has done for me;
I cried to him in deep distress,
And now his wondrous grace I bless,
for he has set me free.

4 The Lord, who turns away the plea
of those who love iniquity,
has answered my request;
he has not turned away my prayer,
his grace and love he makes me share;
his name be ever blest.

Scripture References:
st.1 = Ps. 66:8-12
st.2 = Ps. 66:13-15
st.3 = Ps. 66:16-20

Though this versification is based on Psalm 66:8-20, it doesn’t incorporate the strong literary images of the biblical text (66). Still, “Come, All You People” does pick up significant themes common to praise psalms: praise God for deliverance (st.1), fulfillment of vows and dedication to God’s service (st.2), and public testimony to God’s salvation and care (st.3). Stanzas 1 and 2 use the plural case, calling all people to communal and consecrated worship of God, and stanza 3 uses the singular, relating the psalmist’s personal experience with God for the benefit of “all who fear the Lord.”

The versification (altered) is from the 1912 Psalter and originally began with the words “Come, all ye people, bless our God.” See PHH 66 for other comments on Psalm 66.

Liturgical Use:
Beginning of worship; offering of gifts, times of turmoil; thanksgiving for deliverance.

ADOWA was composed by Charles H. Gabriel (PHH 24), the noted gospel songwriter, during the Billy Sunday-Homer Rodeheaver evangelistic crusades of the 1910s, and was published with this text in the 1912 Psalter. Sing the tune in two very long phrases. --Psalter Hymnal Handbook, 1988
