1 Sing the Triumphs of your conqu'ring
Head, and crucified King;
His atchievements, when he vanquish'd
All our enemies we'll sing:
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah,
Glory, Glory, Lord be thine.

2 Long he struggled with confused
Noise and garments roll'd in blood;
'Till destroying sin and hell, and
Death, he rescu'd man to God:
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah,
Glory, Glory, Lord be thine.

3 Most triumphant, greatly glor'ous,
He from death and hell arose!
In him all his church victor'ous,
Triumph'd o'er her dreadful foes:
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah,
Glory, Glory, Lord be thine.

4 High ascending, 'midst angelick
Songs, and sounds of trumpets loud,
In eternal triumph leading
All the captives of his blood:
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah,
Glory, Glory, Lord be thine.

5 Far above the highest heav'n
Thus he glor'ously ascends,
Where the honour's to him given,
Ev'ry thought of ,an transcends:
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah,
Glory, Glory, Lord be thine.

6 There, exalted, live and reign, whilst
We admire thy wounds and blood,
'Till we see thee come again, in
All the pomp and power of God:
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah,
Glory, Glory, Lord be thine.

He worked under George Whitefield as a Calvinistic Methodist preacher and missionary. However, Whitefield and Relly separated ways over Relly's seemingly universalist teaching that all humanity was elect (i.e. saved) when Christ took the punishment for all sin when he died. He also departed from both the Calvinists and Methodists by taking the doctrine of Justification further, in teaching that believers no longer sin and the Law's sole purpose is to condemn humanity and point them to Christ.
