126. From All That Dwell Below the Skies

1 From all that dwell below the skies
let the Creator’s praise arise:
O praise him, Alleluia!
Let the Redeemer’s name be sung
through ev'ry land, by every tongue:
O praise him, O praise him, Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!

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