Psalm 100

Words: The Scottish Psalter

Psalm of praise.

First Version - this version was retained from the 
1562 English and 1564 Scottish Psalters. It is by
William Kethe.

 1  All people that on earth do dwell,
       Sing to the Lord with cheerful voice.
 2  Him serve with mirth, his praise forth tell,
       Come ye before him and rejoice.

 3  Know that the Lord is God indeed;
       Without our aid he did us make:
    We are his flock, he doth us feed,
       And for his sheep he doth us take.

 4  O enter then his gates with praise,
       Approach with joy his courts unto:
    Praise, laud, and bless his name always,
       For it is seemly so to do.

 5  For why? the Lord our God is good,
       His mercy is for ever sure;
    His truth at all times firmly stood,
       And shall from age to age endure.

Second Version 
Common Metre Tunes

 1  O all ye lands, unto the Lord
       make ye a joyful noise.
 2  Serve God with gladness, him before
       come with a singing voice.

 3  Know ye the Lord that he is God;
       not we, but he us made:
    We are his people, and the sheep
       within his pasture fed.

 4  Enter his gates and courts with praise,
       to thank him go ye thither:
    To him express your thankfulness,
       and bless his name together.

 5  Because the Lord our God is good,
       his mercy faileth never;
    And to all generations
       his truth endureth ever.
