Lyrics

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! heavenly High Priest,
here on earth our help, our stay;
Alleluia! hear the sinful
cry to you from day to day.
Intercessor, Friend of sinners,
earth’s Redeemer, hear our plea,
where the songs of all the sinless
sweep across the crystal sea.
