Representative Text

1 Shout Jehovah strong in battle,
Count the vict'ries he hath won;
Sing the Saviour's mighty conquests,
Praise him, praise him, cry 'tis done:
He hath finish'd finish'd, finish'd he hath finish'd,
What his love ere worlds begun.

2 Give to Jesus pow'r and glory,
Say the triumph Lord is thine:
He hath took from sin dominion:
Death and hell the prey resign:
Sin subdued, death destroyed, man redeemed,
These are glorious works divine.

3 People, nations, tongues and kindreds
Hail, all hail the mighty God:
Praise Jehovah strong in battle:
Shout the garment roll'd in blood.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah, Hallelujah.
High hosannas shout abroad.
