Representative Text

1. Hear the everlasting song,
Breaking thro’ the sky:
Glory, glory be to God,
To God on high!
Thro’ the blessèd courts of light
Saints and angels, joyful singing,
Strike their harps and shout aloud,
The Lord is king!

2. Hear the loud triumphant song,
O’er the world resound:
Like a mighty ocean rolls
The glad, glad sound:
Hallelujah! praise the Lord!
Distant climes His triumph singing,
Lift their voice and shout aloud,
The Lord is king!

3. Praise the blessèd Three in One,
All ye heav’nly host:
Praise the Father, praise the Son,
And Holy Ghost!
As it was in all the past,
Through eternal ages ringing,
Ransomed ones shall still proclaim,
The Lord is king!

Author: Fanny Crosby, 1820-1915
