1  Sing Alleluia forth in duteous praise,
O citizens of heaven, and sweetly raise
An endless Alleluia.

2  Ye next, who stand before th' Eternal light,
In hymning choirs re-echo to the Height
An endless Alleluia.

3  The Holy City shall take up your strain,
And with glad songs resounding wake again
An endless Alleluia.


4  In blissful antiphons ye thus rejoice
To render to the Lord with thankful voice
An endless Alleluia.

5  Ye who have gained at length your palms in bliss,
Victorious ones, your chant shall still be this,
An endless Alleluia.

6  There, in one grand acclaim for ever ring
The strains which tell the honour of your King,
An endless Alleluia.


7  This is the rest for weary ones brought back;
This is glad food and drink which none shall lack,--
An endless Alleluia.

8  While Thee, by whom were all things made, we praise
For ever, and tell out in sweetest lays
An endless Alleluia.

9  Almighty Christ, to Thee our voices sing
Glory for evermore; to Thee we bring
An endless Alleluia.
