Tune: OLD 100th

Composer: Louis Burgeois

Author: William Kethe, alt., and Thomas Ken

“All People That On Earth Do Dwell (Psalm 100)” combines several textual and musical elements. The verses are an adaptation of the hymn by William Kethe, set to the tune of OLD 100th. The chorus uses the last stanza of a lesser-known hymn by Thomas Ken, “Awake My Soul and With the Sun.” This final stanza of Ken’s hymn is commonly sung as the Doxology (“Praise God, from whom all blessings flow…”), and is here set to new music.

The hymnal score is also available for download without the added chorus.

Verse 1:
All people that on earth do dwell
Sing to the Lord with cheerful voice
Serve Him with fear, tell forth His praise.
Come kneel before Him and rejoice!

Verse 2:
For God is Lord of heaven and earth;
He gave us breath by His command;
We are the people of His word,
The flock He feeds by His own hand.

Chorus:
Praise God from whom all blessings flow!
Praise Him all creatures here below!

Verse 3:
O come into His gates with praise;
Approach His courts with thankfulness.
And praise and laud His holy name,
Exalted and forever blessed.

Chorus 2:
Praise God from whom all blessings flow!
Praise Him all creatures here below!
Praise God above, ye heavenly hosts!
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost!

Verse 4:
The Lord our God is always good;
His mercy is forever sure.
His truth from the beginning stood,
and shall from age to age endure!
