West Gallery style anthem from "Divine Harmony. Six Anthems and a Christmas Ode each in score, calculated for country choirs and interspersed with symphonies but may be occasionally performed without them. Composed by Benjamin Cuzens Portsmouth Common". London, 1787.

The current edition comprises a choral score with organ reduction of both vocal and instrumental parts, and three separate instrumental parts. The anthem may therefore be performed with instrumental accompaniment as preferred.
Lyrics: Psalm 81, vv. 1-4

Sing we merrily unto God our strength: make a cheerful noise unto the God of Jacob.
Take the psalm, bring hither the tabret: the merry harp with the lute.
Blow up the trumpet in the new moon: even in the time appointed, and upon our solemn feast-day.
For this was made a statute in Israel: and a law of the God of Jacob.
Glory be to God on high and on earth peace, goodwill towards men. Hallelujah.
