Chorus O praise the Lord with one consent and magnify his name! Let all the servants of the Lord, his worthy praise proclaim! Alto Praise him, all ye that in his house attend with constant care, with those that to his utmost courts with humble zeal repair. Tenor For this our truest int'rest is glad hymns of praise to sing, and with loud songs to bless his name, a most delightful thing. Bass That God is great we often have by glad experience found; and seen how he with wondrous power above all Gods is crowned. Chorus With cheerful notes let all the earth to heaven their voices raise! Let all, inspired with godly mirth, sing solemn hymns with praise. Soprano God's tender mercy knows no bounds, his truth shall ne'er decay. Then let the willings nations round their grateful tribute pay. Chorus Ye boundless realms of joy exalt your Maker's fame; his praise your song employ above the starry frame. Chorus Your voices raise, ye Cherubim and Seraphim, to sing his praise! Alleluja.
