Full Text

1 Praise ye the Lord, all nature join
In work and worship so divine:
Let heaven and earth unite and raise
High hallelujahs to his praise.

2 While realms of joy, and worlds around,
Their hallelujahs loud resound;
Let saints below, and saints above,
Exulting sing redeeming love.

3 High hallelujahs well become,
Vile prodigals returned home;
His mighty acts, his wond'rous grace
Demand our highest songs of praise.

4 As instruments well tun'd and strung,
We'll praise the Lord with heart and tongue;
While life remains we'll loud proclaim
High hallelujahs to his name.

5 Beyond the grave in nobler strains,
When freed from sorrow, son, and pains,
Eternally the church will raise
High hallelujahs to his praise.
