269. [Sing, my tongue, the glorious battle]

5 God be praised,
glory to the Son;
to the Spirit now
and evermore praise and glory, praise
in the highest, while unending ages run.

4 At his feet,
all with sleepless eye,
veil their faces as they cry:
Alleluia, Lord, Alleluia, Lord,
Alleluia, Lord Most High! Alleluia!
