Adoration and Praise

All Nations exhorted to Adoration and Praise by TATE & BRADY.
Taken from Psalm 100

My newly rebound hymn book, originally published in the 1840s and reprinted with new supplements in the 1850s opens with this 17th century Psalm adaptation by Tate & Brady, known for their “New Version of the Psalms of David” published in 1696.

WITH one consent, let all the earth
To God their cheerful voices raise;
Glad homage pay, with hallowed mirth,
And sing before him songs of praise; —

Assured that he is God alone,
From whom both we and all proceed —
We, whom he chooses for his own,
The flock which he delights to feed.

O, enter, then, his temple gate;
Thence to his courts devoutly press;
And still your grateful hymns repeat,
And still his name with praises bless;

For he’s the Lord, supremely good;
His mercy is forever sure;
His truth, which always firmly stood,
To endless ages shall endure.
