A Summons to Praise

Representative Text

1 Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
In His temple God be praised;

Be the sounding anthem raised.

2 Hallelujah! Praise Jehovah
For His mighty acts of fame;
Excellent His might and greatness;
Fitting praises then proclaim.

3 Hallelujah! Praise Jehovah
With the trumpet's joyful sound;
Praise with harp and praise with viol,
Let His glorious praise abound.

4 Hallelujah! Praise Jehovah,
With the flute His praises sing;
Praise Him with the clanging cymbals,
Let them with His praises ring.

5 Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
All that breathe, Jehovah praise;
Let the voices God hath given
Joyful anthems to Him raise.

The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
