Let all the world in every corner sing

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.
The Church with psalms must shout, No door can keep them out;
But above all, the heart must bear the longest part.

–Words: George Herbert (1593-1633)
–Music: Ralph Vaughan Williams (1872-1958)
