God’s Nature – God’s Being and Majesty
1 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 The Lord, ye know, is God indeed;
Without our aid he did us make:
We are his folk, he doth us feed;
And for his sheep he doth us take.
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;
His mercy is for ever sure;
His truth at all times firmly stood,
And shall from age to age endure.
