Alleluia Voices Raise


Alleluia! Voices raise,
sounding God Almighty’s praise.
Alleluia, alleluia!
Hither bring in one consent
heart and voice and instrument.
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

Now come all before God’s face,
in this chorus take your place.
Alleluia, alleluia!
And amid the mortal throng,
be you masters of the song.
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

Let, in praise of Christ,
the sound run a never-ending round,
Alleluia, alleluia!
that our songs of praise may be
everlasting, as is he.
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

So this huge wide orb we see
shall one choir, one temple be.
Alleluia, alleluia!
In the Holy Spirit one,
we will sing what God has done.
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

Thus our song shall over-climb
all the bounds of space and time.
Alleluia, alleluia!
Alleluia! Voices raise,
sounding God Almighty’s praise.
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!
