1  Hallelujah! raise, O raise
To our God the song of praise;
All His servants join to sing
God our Saviour and our King.

2  Blessèd be for evermore
That dread Name which we adore;
Round the world His praise be sung
Through all lands, in every tongue.

3  O’er all nations God alone,
Higher than the heav’ns His throne;
Who is like to God most high,
Infinite in majesty!


4  Yet to view the heav’ns He bends;
Yea, to earth He condescends;
Passing by the rich and great,
For the low and desolate.

5  He can raise the poor to stand
With the princes of the land;
Wealth upon the needy shower;
Set him with the high in power.

6  He the broken spirit cheers:
Turns to joy the mourner’s tears;
Such the wonders of His ways;
Praise His Name, forever praise!
