Nations of all the earth rejoice
before you, Lord, our sovereign King,
we serve with cheerful heart and voice.
The earth will echo songs we sing!
Lord, you are God, and you alone
give life and breath and being here;
we are your work, and not our own;
your sheep, your children, free of fear,
for you are good, divinely kind;
and great your grace, your mercy sure;
all peoples of the earth shall find
your truth is power that will endure.
