828. Alleluia! Voices Raise

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

2 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!

3 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!

4 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!

5 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!
