1 O the glory hallelujah
Has been ringing thro’ my soul,
Ever since I came to Jesus,
And His Spirit made me whole;
Now my spirit, soul and body
All are under His control,
On the glory hallelujah line.

Glory, glory!
Oh yes, ’tis glory in my soul
Ever since I came to Jesus,
And His Spirit made me whole,
I’ve been on the hallelujah line.

2 O the hallelujah chorus
Is a glorious one to sing,
But the soul’s true hallelujah
Is awakened by our king;
For the joy of His salvation
Makes the heart with music ring,
On the glory hallelujah line. [Refrain]

3 I’m a hallelujah pilgrim,
And I’ll never hold my peace
Till my blessèd Savior tells me,
Then, then only will I cease
To invite poor, hungry sinners,
Come and share the Gospel feast,
On the glory hallelujah line. [Refrain]

4 Then be ready, faithful pilgrims,
To go forward in the fight,
Take the Spirit’s blade of victory,
Wielding it with all your might,
For with faith in God we conquer,
And we’ll praise Him with delight,
On the glory hallelujah line. [Refrain]
