Representative Text

Let all the world abroad
In cheerful praise unite
To bless the name of God,
Creator, Lord of might.

He made the sea and land,
The pastures rolling wide,
The mountains towering, grand,
The streams that ceaseless glide;

The cattle on the hills,
The flocks afield that rove,
The birds, whose music fills
The silence of the grove;

The heavens that, day and night,
His matchless power declare,
The sun and moon, whose light
Illumines everywhere.

Let man, creation’s lord,
His rightful homage give
To Him Whose mighty word
First called his soul to live.

And with the heavenly host,
Our Sovereign Lord adore,
And Son, and Holy Ghost,
Both now, and evermore.
