2. 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 ! . . .
Thy praise shall sound from shore to shore,
Till suns shall rise and set no more:
Alleluia ! . . .
