    Verse 1
    ALLELUIA, song of sweetness,
    Voice of joy that cannot die;
    Alleluia is the anthem
    Ever dear to choirs on high;
    In the house of GOD abiding
    Thus they sing eternally.

    Verse 2
    Alleluia, Church victorious,
    Thou may'st lift the joyful strain,
    Alleluia, songs of triumph
    Well befit the ransom'd train,
    Faint and feeble are our praises
    While in exile we remain.

    Verse 3
    Alleluia may not always
    Be our song while here below;
    Alleluia, our transgressions,
    Make us for a while forego;
    For the solem time is coming
    When our tears for sin must flow.

    Verse 4
    Therefore in our hymns we pray Thee,
    Grant us, Bless
