All People That On Earth Do Dwell + Doxology

On occasion, I've utilized the familiarity that many have with the tune (composed by Louis

Bourgeois) of the Doxology (words by Thomas Ken), and I preface it with the hymn "All People That On Earth Do Dwell" (words by William Kethe). Lyrics below:

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.

Know that the Lord 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.

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.

For why? The Lord our God is good;

His mercy is forever sure; His truth at all times firmly stood,

and shall from age to age endure.

Praise God from Whom all blessings flow

Praise Him all creatures here below

Praise Him above ye heav’nly host

Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost
