attributed to William Kethe, 1561
All people that on earth do dwell,|
Sing to the Lord with cheerful voice.
Him serve with mirth, His praise forth tell;
Come ye before Him and rejoice.
2. Know that the Lord is God indeed;
3. O enter then His gates with praise;|
Approach with joy His courts unto;
Praise, laud, and bless His Name always,
For it is seemly so to do.
4. For why? the Lord our God is good;
5. To Father, Son and Holy Ghost,|
The God Whom heaven and earth adore,
From men and from the angel host
Be praise and glory evermore.
