All People that on Earth Do Dwell

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.

The Lord, ye know, is God indeed;
Without our aid He did us make;
We are His folk, He doth us feed,
And for His sheep He doth us take.

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.

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.

To Father, Son and Holy Ghost,
The God Whom Heaven and earth adore,
From men and from the angel host
Be praise and glory evermore.

-Psalm 100, Scottish Psalter, 1561

Jesus Paid the Highest Price

Poor and lowly as I am
Helpless as a wand’ring lamb.
All but lost without a fold,
My waywardness has left me cold.
As Shadows fall a voice draws near.
It stirs my heart, expells my fear.
‘Tis Jesus Christ, the shepherd King,
Come to pay the price for me.
 
Bleeding Shepherd sacrificed;
Thou hast paid too high a price
To reach and save the weak and small
And wrap Your arms around them all.
When love laid down upon the cross,
Hope sprang up and called out to us,
“Sin’s great debt now satisfied,
Jesus paid the highest price.”
 
O’er mountains high and valleys low,
Your voice has led me through them all.
With ev’ry mile my hunger grows
To be with You before Your throne,
Where I will see You face to face.
My scars and sorrows then erased,
All because my shepherd King
Came to pay the price for me
 
Bleeding Shepherd sacrificed;
Thou hast paid too high a price
To reach and save the weak and small
And wrap Your arms around them all.
When love laid down upon the cross,
Hope sprang up and called out to us,
“Sin’s great debt now satisfied,
Jesus paid the highest price.”
