54. Hallelujah! Raise, O Raise

1 Hallelujah! Raise, O raise
To our God the song of praise;
All his servants join to sing
God our Saviour and our King.

2 Blessed be forevermore
That dread Name which we adore:
Round the world his praise be sung
Through all lands, in ev'ry tongue.

3 O'er all nations God alone,
Higher than the heav'ns his throne;
Who is like to God most high,
Infinite in majesty!

4 Yet to view the heav'ns he bends;
Yea, to earth he condescends;
Passing by the rich and great,
For the low and desolate.

5 He can raise the poor to stand
With the princes of the land;
Wealth upon the needy show'r:
Set him with the high in pow'r.

6 He the broken spirit cheers:
Turns to joy the mourner's tears;
Such the wonders of his ways;
Praise his name, forever praise!
