Jauchzet dem Herren [Shout to the Lord] (Psalm 100:1-5) – Heinrich Schütz

350px-schutzPsalm 100:1-5 [German]

Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands.

Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing.

Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.


Jauchzet dem Herren, SWV 36 (The Psalms of David, 1619), composed by Heinrich Schütz (1585-1672)
