Sing out your hallelujahs

Lift the strain of high thanksgiving!

Lift the strain of high thanksgiving!
Tread with songs the hallowed way!
Praise our father's God, for mercies
New to us their sons to-day;
Here they built for Him a dwelling,
Served Him here in ages past,
Fixed it for His sure possession,
Holy ground, while time shall last.
