For SATB Choir, opt. Congregation, Organ (or piano) and optional Trumpet. A paraphrase of Psalm 100, this is a setting of the tune North Hill by Robert Weaver. A great, rousing, singable tune with two cleverly composed (opt. unaccompanied) interior stanzas. Add the trumpet for an extra flourish!
The congregational part (for the last stanza) is included in the EXTRAS (ZIP) file.
From all the earth send up the song
Shout glad hosannas loud and long!
Serve joyfully! Our God adore.
Acclaim God's honor evermore!
Great God, Creator, Source of all,
both keeps and guards us when we fall.
One flock in our Good Shepherd's fold,
we feast on bounties yet untold.
The gates of glory beckon here.
Come, bless God's name. Give thanks. Draw near.
God's mercies last through all our days.
New psalms, spring forth in grateful praise!
Our God is true from age to age.
Our God is good beyond our gauge.
Our God is faithful, ever sure.
God's kindness, love, and grace endure!
