Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

78. Halleluja!

1 Hallelujah! song of gladness,
Song of everlasting joy!
Hallelujah! song the sweetest
That can angel hosts employ!
Hallelujah! hallelujah!
Hallelujah! praise the Lord!
Round the throne the angels gather,
Singing praise without alloy.

2 Hallelujah! church victorious,
Thou canst sing this joyful strain;
Hallelujah! songs of triumph
Well befit the ransomed train;
Hallelujah! hallelujah!
Hallelujah! praise the Lord!
We our song must raise in sadness,
While in exile we remain.

3 Hallelujah! supplication,
God of grace, we raise to Thee;
Hallelujah! in Thy kingdom
Hallelujah! hallelujah!
Hallelujah! praise the Lord!
Make us all Thy joy to see;
Then we’ll sing our Hallelujah,—
Sing to all eternity.
