  Praise to God from all nations.

   1  From all that dwell below the skies
      Let the Creator's praise arise;
      Let the Redeemer's name be sung
      Through ev'ry land, by ev'ry tongue.

   2  Eternal are thy mercies, Lord,
      Eternal truth attends thy word;
      Thy praise shall sound from shore to shore,
      Till suns shall rise and set no more.

  The Same

   1  O all ye nations, praise the Lord,
         Each with a diff'rent tongue;
      In ev'ry language learn his word,
         And let his name be sung.

   2  His mercy reigns through ev'ry land;
         Proclaim his grace abroad;
      Forever firm his truth shall stand;
         Praise ye the faithful God.

  The Same

   1     Thy name, Almighty Lord,
         Shall sound through distant lands,
      Great is thy grace, and sure thy word;
         Thy truth forever stands.

   2     Far be thine honor spread,
         And long thy praise endure,
      Till morning light and ev'ning shade
         Shall be exchanged no more.
