George C. Stebbins


All people that dwell on the earth,
Your songs to Jehovah now raise;
Come, serve Him with gladness and joy,
Approach Him with anthems of praise.

Know ye that Jehovah is God,
Our sovereign and maker is He;
His people, forever His own,
The sheep of His pasture are we.

With thankfulness enter His gates,
His praise in His temple proclaim;
Your voices in thanksgiving raise,
And bless ye His glorious name.

For gracious and good is the Lord,
His mercy to us never ends;
His faithfulness, true to His word,
Through ages unending extends.
