Representative Text

1 Hallelujah! hail to Christ the Lord!
For today he passes o’er the way;
He, the Prince, th’exalted Son of God,
Now is passing, hail him while you may.

Hallelujah! hail to Jesus!
Sing with gladness, praise his name forevermore.
Hallelujah! hail to Jesus!
Sing with gladness, tell his praises o’er and o’er.

2 Hallelujah! sing in joyful strains;
For the King of Glory is at hand;
Lift your eyes, behold, he loving waits,
Waits for thee, oh, haste, at his command. [Refrain]

3 Hallelujah! sing hosannas forth!
Tell the news, the wide, wide world around,
Christ is come, and brings salvation nigh,
Free to all, to earth’s remotest bound. [Refrain]

Hall, Jane E., of Battleborough, Vermont, has in I. D. Sankey's Sacred Songs and Solos, 18S1, under the initials "J. E. H.," (1) "The love that Jesus had for me" (Love of Jesus); (2) "We shall have a new name in that land" (The New Name). The music in Sankey to these hymns is also by the same person. --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology, Appendix, Part II (1907)  Go to person page >
