1 Let all the world in ev'ry corner sing,
"My God and King!"
The heav'ns are not too high,
his praise may thither fly;
the earth is not too low,
his praises there may grow.
Let all the world in ev'ry corner sing,
"My God and King!"

2 Let all the world in ev'ry corner sing,
"My God and King!"
The church with psalms must shout:
no door can keep them out.
But above all the heart
must bear the longest part.
Let all the world in ev'ry corner sing,
"My God and King!"
