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
