Alleluia! Sing to Jesus!
His the scepter, His the throne;
Alleluia! His the triumph,
His the victory alone!
Hark! The songs of peaceful Zion
Thunder like a mighty flood:
“Jesus out of every nation
Has redeemed us by His blood.”
Alleluia! Not as orphans
Are we left in sorrow now;
Alleluia! He is near us;
Faith believes, nor questions how.
Though the cloud from sight received Him,
When the forty days were o’er,
Shall our hearts forget His promise?—
“I am with you evermore.”
Alleluia! Bread of angels,
Here on earth our Food, our Stay;
Alleluia! Here the humble
Flee to You from day to day.
Advocate and Intercessor,
Earth’s Redeemer, hear our plea;
You, the Lamb, alone we worship,
You, the Lamb, alone we see.
Alleluia! King eternal,
Lord omnipotent we own;
Alleluia! Born of Mary,
Earth Your footstool, Heav’n Your throne.
Robed in flesh, the veil You sundered,
Limitless High Priest we laud—
You have saved us from destruction,
You have raised us up to God!
