344. From All That Dwell Below the Skies

1 From all that dwell below the skies
let the Creator’s praise arise:
alleluia, alleluia!
Let the Redeemer’s name be sung
through every land, in every tongue:
alleluia, alleluia,
alleluia, alleluia,
alleluia!

2 Eternal are thy mercies, Lord;
eternal truth attends thy Word:
alleluia, alleluia!
Thy praise shall sound from shore to shore
till suns rise and set no more:
alleluia, alleluia,
alleluia, alleluia,
alleluia!
