1 Hallelujah! raise, O raise
to the LORD our song of praise;
praise, O servants of the LORD,
praise the name of God the LORD.

2 Blessed be forevermore
that great name which we adore;
dawn to dusk, from east to west
let the LORD's great name be blest.

3 O'er all nations God alone,
higher than the heav'ns His throne;
who is like the LORD most high,
gazing down on earth and sky?

4 From the dust He lifts the poor,
from the ashes those forlorn;
those He's raised up from the pit
with His people's princes sit.

5 He the barren woman takes,
and a joyful mother makes;
she finds joy in His reward.
Hallelujah! Praise the LORD!
