        1. 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 feeds 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?
