Chandos Anthem no. 1: O be joyful in the Lord, all ye lands
Language: English  after the Latin 

Tenor and Chorus
 O be joyful in the Lord, all ye lands: 

 Serve the Lord with gladness, and come before
 his presence with a song.

Soprano and Tenor. Duet
 Be ye sure that the Lord he is God: it is he that
 has made us, and not we ourselves; we are his
 people, and the sheep of his pasture. 

 O go your way into his gates with thanksgiving,
 and into his courts with praise: be thankful
 unto him, and speak good of his Name.

Soprano, Tenor and Bass. Trio
 For the Lord is gracious, his mercy is
 everlasting: and his truth endureth from
 generation to generation. 

 Glory be to the Father, glory be to the Son: and
 to the Holy Ghost;

 As it was in the beginning, it is now, and ever
 shall be: world without end. Amen.
