1 O all ye lands, rejoice in God,
Sing praises to His name;
Let the whole earth, with one accord,
His wondrous acts proclaim.
2 And let His faithful servants tell,
How, by redeeming love,
Their souls are saved from death and hell,
To share the joys above.
3 Tell how the Holy Spirit’s grace
Forbids their feet to slide;
And, as they run the Christian race,
Vouchsafes to be their guide.
4 Sing, sing, ye saints, and shout for joy,
Ye ransom’d of the Lord;
Be grateful praise your sweet employ,
His presence your reward.
