The Sacred Harp has a tune called Portuguese Hymn that is basically the same, but the words are a different translation and it scans a bit differently. Repeated words on last line are omitted.

Hither, ye faithful, haste with songs of triumph,
To Bethlehem haste, the Lord of life to meet;
To you this day is born a Prince and Savior;
Oh come, and let us worship at His feet.

Shout His almighty name, ye choirs of angels,
And let the celestial courts His praise repeat;
Unto our God be glory in the highest,
Oh come, and let us worship at His feet.
