From Far and Wide with joyful revelry
Praise and serve the Lord and come and sing
With gladness in your hearts before his chivalry.
O search your hearts and know that He is King!
Our Lord with kindly touch our souls hath made
And to Him great obeisance shall we show
For we are His and His we shall remain,
As tender sheep in watchful care to grow.
O come! Come in to Him with grateful heart
Let court and gate reverberate with praise.
For thankful people with Him will not part
And always bless His name with all our days.
The Lord is Good and is forever kind.
His truth it will endure through earth's unwind.
Make a joyful noise unto the Lord all ye lands.
Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing.
Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.
