If you know when the trans­la­tion was done, or where to get a good pic­ture of Franck or Nel­son (head-and-shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els), would you ?


Praise the Lord, each tribe and nation,
Praise Him with a joyous heart;
Ye who know His full salvation,
Gather now from every part;
Let your voices glorify,
In His temple, God on high.

He’s our God, and our creator,
We, His flock and chosen seed:
He, our Lord and Liberator,
Us from sin and peril freed:
And at last His flock shall rest
In the mansions of the blest.

Give Him thanks within His portals;
In the courts His deeds proclaim;
Hither come, ye ransomed mortals,
Glorify our Savior’s name.
Ever kind and loving, He
Keeps His faith eternally.
