Representative Text

1. To God, let all the earth
Agree, with sacred mirth,
In shouts, to raise their cheerful voice.
2. With gladness serve the Lord,
And come, with one accord,
Before his presence, and rejoice.

3. For this you can't but own,
Jehovah's God alone;
He life and breath, to all did give;
His people us he chose,
The flock his folds enclose,
And we on his fat pastures live.

4 Enter his gates with joy,
In thanks your hearts employ,
And make his courts resound his fame;
Strike up a grateful song,
From every heart, and tongue,
To bless his great, and holy name.

5 Because the Lord is kind,
His mercy, you shall find,
Is everlastingly secure;
His truth, through ages past,
Has stood unshaken fast,
And shall, through every age, endure.
