229. 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, by every tongue.
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

2 In every land begin the song,
To every land the strains belong:
Alleluia! Alleluia!
In cheerful sounds all voices raise
And fill the world with joyful praise.
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

3 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!
