1 All people that on earth do dwell,
  sing to the Lord with chearfull voice, 
  Him serve with feare, his praise forth tell:
  come ye before him and rejoyce.

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 alwaies,
  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.  



Note: The tune now usually called "Old 100th" acquired that name because of its use with this metrical version of Psalm 100 in Sternhold & Hopkins' Whole Booke of Psalmes (1562); previously it was associated (in the Genevan Psalter) with the 134th Psalm, and it is still sometimes called GENEVAN 134.
