Hallelujah! Praise God in His Holy Temple

Hallelujah! Praise God in his holy temple

Author: Charles Villiers Stanford
Tune: Chant (Stanford 16121)
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

Hallelujah! Praise God in his holy temple;
praise him in the firmament of his power.
Praise him for his mighty acts;
praise him for his excellent greatness.
Praise him with the blast of the ram's horn;
praise him with lyre and harp.
Praise him with timbrel and dance;
praise him with strings and pipe.
Praise him with resounding cymbals;
praise him with loud clanging cymbals.
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.
Hallelujah!
Glory to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit:
as it was in the beginning,
is now, and will be forever. Amen.
