Thomas Tallis


All ye who love your Maker’s name,
And on His truth rely,
Through all the earth His grace proclaim,
And raise His honors high.

All ye who make the Lord your trust,
His wondrous acts recite;
The good, the faithful and the just,
Your terror and delight.

Sing of His mercies, all ye saints,
Declare His judgments too;
Tell of His vengeance to his foes,
And all His love to you.
