Matthäus Appelles von Löwenstern, Breslau, 1642; German text

Now let all loudly
Sing praise to God the Lord;
Christendom, proudly
Laud Him with one accord.
Gently He bids thee come before Him;
Haste, then, O Israel, now adore Him.

2. For the Lord reigneth
Over the universe,
All He sustaineth,
All things His praise rehearse,
The angel host His glory telling,
Psalter and harp are the anthem swelling.

3. Come, heathen races,
Cast off all grief and care,
For pleasant places
Your Savior doth prepare
Where His blest Word abroad is sounded,
Pardon for sinners and grace unbounded.

4. Richly He feed us
Always and everywhere;
Gently He leads us
With a true father's care;
The late and early rains He sends us,
Daily His blessing, His love, attends us.

5. Sing we His praises
Who is thus merciful;
Christendom raises
Songs to His glorious rule.
Rejoice! No foe shall now alarm us;
He will protect us, and who can harm us?


From the Geistliche Krichen- und Haus-Musik, #12 of his "Apellis-Lieder".
