SOLO TENOR, OR VERSE AND FULL,

FOUR VOICES.

Great God! what do I see and hear,
The end of things created :
The Judge of mankind doth appear,
On clouds of glory seated :

The trumpet sounds, the graves restore,
The dead which they contained before,
Prepare my soul to meet him. Luther.

[ocr errors]

All people that on earth do dwell,

Sing to the Lord with cheerful voice ; Him serve with fear, his praise forth tell,

Come ye before him and rejoice. 2. The Lord ye know is God indeed,

Without our aid he did us make ;
We are his flock, he doth us feed,

And for his sheep he doth us take. 3. O enter then his gates with praise,

Approach with joy his courts unto;
Praise, laud, and bless his name always,

For it is seemly so to do.
4. For why ? the Lord our God is good,

His mercy is for ever sure;
His truth at all times firmly stood,
And shall from age to age endure.

Luther.
The same by Tallis.

O Lord the maker of all things, We pray thee now in this Evening, Us to defend through thy mercy, From all deceits of our enemie : Let neither us deluded be Good Lord, with dream or fantasie : . Our hearts waking in thee thou keep, That we in sin fall not on sleep. O Father, through thy blessed Son, Grant us this our Petition ; To whom, with thee and the Holy Ghost

always, In heaven and earth be laud and praise.

Amen. King Henry VIII.

And lighten with celestial fire.

And Thee of both, to be but one ;
That, thro' the ages all along,
This may be our endless song ;
