All ye who on this earth do dwell
- All ye who on this earth do dwell,
Give thanks and glorify
The Lord whose praises ever swell
In seraph songs on high.
- Lift up your hearts in praise to God,
Himself best Gift of all,
Who works His wonders all abroad,
Upholding great and small.
- Since first our life began to be,
He has preserved our frame;
And when man's strength was vanity,
He as our Helper came.
- Though often we His patience try
And well deserve His frown,
In grace He lays His anger by
And pours new blessings down.
- 'Tis He revives our fainting soul,
Gives joyful hearts to men;
And when great waves of trouble roll,
He drives them back again.
- May He adorn with precious peace
Our own, our native, land
And crown with joys that never cease
The labors of our hand!
- Long as we tarry here below
Our saving Health is He;
And when from earth to heaven we go,
May He our portion be!
