637. From all that dwell below the skies

1 From all that dwell below the skies
let the Creator's praise arise:
Alleluia, alleluia.
let the Redeemer's name be sung
through every land by every tongue.
Alleluia, alleluia,
alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

2 Eternal are thy mercies, Lord;
eternal truth attends thy word:
Alleluia, alleluia.
thy praise shall sound from shore to shore,
till suns shall rise and set no more.
Alleluia, alleluia,
alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!
