 1  Ye people all with one accord
       clap hands, shout, and rejoice,
    Be glad, and sing unto the Lord
       with sweet and pleasant voice; 

 2  For high the Lord and dreadful is,
       his wonders manifold,
    A mighty King he is likewise
       in all the earth extolled.

 3  The people shall he make to be
       unto our bondage thrall,
    And underneath our feet shall he
       the nations make to fall:

 4  For us the heritage he chose.
       which we possess alone,
    The excellency of Jacob
       his well-beloved one.

 5  Our God ascended up on high
       with joy and pleasant noise;
    The Lord goes up above the sky
       with trumpet's royal voice.

 6  Sing praises to our God, sing praise,
       sing praises to our King;
    For God is King of all the earth,
       all skilful praises sing.

 7  God o'er the heathen reigns, and sits
       upon his holy throne;
    The princes of the people have
       them joineed every one.

 8  To Abraham's people: for our God
       who is exalted high,
    As with a buckler doth defend
       the earth continually.
