Hallelujah!

Representative Text

1 Hallelujah! Song of triumph
Sung by angel choirs on high;
Hallelujah! Never ceasing,
Rolls and thunders thro' the sky.
Strain victorious,
Anthem glorious,
Pealing forth eternally.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Praise the Lord!

Chorus:
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Praise the Lord!

2 Hallelujah! Church redeemed,
Thou dost love the song to raise;
And, tho' exiles from thy glory,
We would join these in thy praise,
Loudly singing,
Ever ringing
Unto God our cheerful lays.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Praise the Lord! [Chorus]

3 Hallelujah! Yet with trembling
We uplift that heav'nly strain,
For a wait of sin and weakness
Mingles with the blest refrain.
Lord, our sadness
Turn to gladness,
Set us free from evil's chain.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Praise the Lord! [Chorus]

4 To thyself, O Father, bring us,
When the strife of sin is o'er;
Then, with all our ransomed children,
Perfect praise shall we outpour.
Then in glory
Sing before thee
Hallelujah evermore.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Praise the Lord! [Chorus]
