Warehamn, Salem. 1 BE joyful in God, all ye lands of the earth,

Oh serve him with gladness and fear; Exult in his presence with music and mirth,

With love and devotion draw near.
2 The Lord he is God-and Jehovah alone,

Creator, and ruler o'er all;
And we are his people, his sceptre we own;

His sheep, and we follow his call. 3 Oh enter bisgates with thanksgiving and song,

Your vows in his temple proclaim;
His praise with melodious accordance prolong,

And bless his adorable name.
4 For good is the Lord, inexpressibly good,

And we are the work of his hand;
His mercy and truth from eternity stood,

And shall to eternity stand. 731

P. M. 1 THE Lord is great! ye hosts of heaven, adore him,

And ye who tread this earthly ball ;
In holy songs rejoice aloud before him,

And shout his praise who made you all.
2 The Lord is great-his majesty how glorious!

Resound his praise from shore to shore ;
O’er sin, and death, and hell, now made victorious,

He rules and reigns forevermore.
3 The Lord is great-his mercy how abounding !

Ye angels, strike your golden chords !
Oh praise our God! with voice and harp resounding,
The King of kings, and Lord of lords!

L. M. 732

TO Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,

And shall be evermore.
