Ring Out the Hallelujahs

Representative Text

1 Sing the song the ransomed sing,
Let your hallelujahs ring,
Glory to the Lord your King;
Ring out the hallelujahs.

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Glory to our Lord and King;
Ring out the hallelujahs.

2 Sing the love that set you free;
Sing the song of liberty,
Sing the glory yet to be;
Ring out the hallelujahs. [Refrain]

3 Sing the grace that made you whole;
Sing the vict'ries of the soul,
Sing while time shall onward roll;
Ring out the hallelujahs. [Refrain]

4 Sing till heaven shall catch the strain,
Hallelujah yet again,
"Love redeeming" the refrain;
Ring out the hallelujahs. [Chorus]
