Let all the World in Every Corner Sing

This is a hymn of praise and adoration of God the King.

It is based on  a poem by English academic and Anglican priest George Herbert (1593 - 1633)

With meter 10.4.6.6.6.6.10.4, it has been set to a number of tunes including
  • LUCKINGTON by Basil Harwood (1859 - 1949)
  • HIGH ROAD by Martin F Shaw (1915)
  • UNIVERSAL PRAISE by Walter G Whinfield (1865-1919)

It appears to be more common as a choral piece than a congregational hymn.

Lyrics

Let all the world in every corner sing, my God and King!
The heavens 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 every corner sing, my God and King!

Let all the world in every 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 every corner sing, my God and King!
