   Hymns of the Christian Church.
The Harvard Classics.  1909–14.
 
Hymns Based on Psalms
 
Psalm C
 
William Kethe ((?) circa 1562)
 
 
ALL people that on earth do dwell,
  Sing to the Lord with cheerful voice,
Him serve with fear, his praise forth tell,
  Come ye before him and rejoice.
 
The Lord ye know is God indeed;        5
  Without our aid he did us make;
We are his folk, he doth us feed,
  And for his sheep he doth us take.
 
O enter then his gates with praise,
  Approach with joy his courts unto;        10
Praise, laud, and bless his name always,
  For it is seemly so to do.
 
For why, the Lord our God is good,
  His mercy is forever sure;
His truth at all times firmly stood,        15
  And shall from age to age endure.
