Above the clear blue sky,
In heaven's bright abode,
The angel host on high
Sing praises to their God:
Alleluia!
They love to sing
To God their King
Alleluia!

But God from children's tongues
On earth receiveth praise;
We then our cheerful songs
In sweet accord will raise:
Alleluia!
We too will sing
To God our King
Alleluia!

O blessèd Lord, thy truth
To all thy flock impart,
And teach us in our youth
To know thee as thou art.
Alleluia!
Then shall we sing
To God our King
Alleluia!

322
O may thy holy word
Spread all the world around,
And all with one accord
Uplift the joyful sound:
Alleluia!
All then shall sing
To God their King
Alleluia!

Amen.
