Praise the Saviour all ye Nations
Christmas Carol Lyrics

Praise the Saviour, all ye nations,
Praise Him, all ye hosts above;
Shout, with joyful acclamation,
His divine, victorious love;
Be His kingdom now promoted,
Let the earth her Monarch know;
Be my all to Him devoted,
To my Lord my all I owe.

See how beauteous on the mountains
Are their feet, whose grand design
Is to guide us to the fountains
That o’erflow with bliss divine,
Who proclaim the joyful tidings
Of salvation all around,
Disregard the world’s deridings,
And in works of love abound.

With my substance will I honor
My Redeemer and my Lord;
Were ten thousand worlds my manor,
All were nothing to His Word:
While the heralds of salvation
His abounding grace proclaim,
Let His friends, of every station,
Gladly join to spread His fame

Praise the Saviour All ye Nations

The music was composed by the talented German composer Michael Praetorius (1571 - 1621) who had been a pupil of Martin Luther and became a Lutheran church composer. Michael Praetorius is famous for writing the treatise Syntagma Musicum in 1619 in which he compiled vast information on German music.
