150E. Hallelujah! Praise God in His Holy Temple

Hallelujah! Praise God in his holy temple;
praise him in the firmament of his power.
Praise him for his mighty acts;
praise him for his excellent greatness.
Praise him with the blast of the ram's horn;
praise him with lyre and harp.
Praise him with timbrel and dance;
praise him with strings and pipe.
Praise him with resounding cymbals;
praise him with loud clanging cymbals.
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.
Hallelujah!
Glory to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit:
as it was in the beginning,
is now, and will be forever. Amen.

Notes: With strong leadership from a choir and organ, congregations can enjoy singing this glorious, Englishstyle chant. It is different from other “Anglican chants” in that it does not use a repeated formula. Rather, it is through-composed, with variations in the texture, melody, and harmony throughout. Place the choir around the perimeter of the assembly as an encouragement and support to the congregation. A leader should conduct the entire assembly with a supporting gesture during the reciting tones; a fluid, quick two-beat pattern for all the cadences; and a generous ritard at the end.
