1 Hallelujah, song of gladness,
Song of everlasting joy;
Hallelujah, song the sweetest
That can angel hosts employ.

Praise ye the Lord, sweet peace He gave me;
Praise ye the Lord, He died to save me;
Praise His name, He’ll never leave me;
Hallelujah, praise the Lord.

2 Hallelujah, church victorious,
Thou may’st raise this joyful strain;
Hallelujah, songs of triumph
Well befit the ransom’d train. [Refrain]

3 Hallelujah, let our voices
Rise to Heav’n with full accord;
Hallelujah, ev’ry moment,
Brings us nearer to the Lord. [Refrain]

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
