Representative Text

1 Sing Alleluia, salvation and glory,
Honor and power to Jesus belong;
Bethlehem’s message, and Calvary’s story,
Wake through the ages, a jubilant song.

Sing Alleluia to Jesus our Lord,
Ruling alone, high on His throne;
Hail Him Emanuel, ever adored,
Praise the Redeemer, His glory make known.

2 Multitudes yonder, with joy and rejoicing,
Join in the song of redemption above;
Come, ye believers, your gratitude voicing,
Publish the news of His wonderful love. [Refrain]

3 Faithful and true is the Sovereign who reigneth,
Lord God omnipotent, King over all;
Blessed is he that the kingdom obtaineth,
Blessed are they who have answered His call. [Refrain]

4 Risen and ruling, forever He liveth,
Jesus, the Victor o’er sin and the grave;
Life everlasting and glory He giveth,
Trust Him, and praise Him the Mighty to save. [Refrain]
