Representative Text

Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!
O Zion, that bringest good tidings,
get thee up, get thee up into the high mountain.
Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!
O Jerusalem, that bringest good tidings,
lift up thy voice, thy voice with strength,
lift up thy voice, be not afraid,
be not afraid, afraid;
Say to the cities of Judah,
Behold your God, your God,
Behold your God.

Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!
Lift up thy voice,
lift up thy voice be not afraid.
Alleluia, Alleluia, Amen.

Oh, that birth forever blessed,
When the Virgin, full of grace,
By the Holy Ghost conceiving,
Bare the Saviour of our race;
And the Babe, the world's Redeemer,
First reveal'd his sacred face,
Evermore and evermore.

Of the Father's Love begotten
Ere the worlds began to be,
He is Alpha and Omega;
He the source, the ending he
Of the things that are, that have been,
And that future years shall see,
Evermore and evermore.

Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!
O Zion, that bringest good tidings,
get thee up, get thee up into the high mountain.
Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!
O Jerusalem, that bringest good tidings,
lift up thy voice, thy voice with strength,
lift up thy voice, be not afraid,
be not afraid, afraid;
Say to the cities of Judah,
Behold your God, your God,
Behold your God.

Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!
Lift up thy voice,
lift up thy voice be not afraid.
Alleluia, Alleluia, Amen.
