All people that on earth do dwell,                   Know that the Lord is God indeed

Sing to the Lord with cheerful voice.              Without our aid he did us make:

Him serve with mirth, his praise forth tell,    We are his flock, he doth us feed;

Come ye before him and rejoice.                     And for his sheep he doth us take.
