36. 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 ev'ry tongue.
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
Alleluia! Alleluia!

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

3 In ev'ry land begin the song;
To ev'ry land the strains belong:
Alleluia! Alleluia!
In cheerful sounds all voices raise,
And fill the world with loudest praise.
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
Alleluia! Alleluia!

Amen.
