1 Let the whole creation cry: Alleluia!
"Glory to the Lord on high!" Alleluia!
Heaven and earth, awake and sing, Alleluia!
God is God and therefore King! Alleluia!
2 Praise him, all ye hosts above, Alleluia!
ever bright and fair in love! Alleluia!
Sun and moon, lift up your voice; Alleluia!
night and stars, in God rejoice, Alleluia!
3 Warriors fighting for the Lord, Alleluia!
prophets burning with his Word, Alleluia!
those to whom the arts belong, Alleluia!
add their voices to the song, Alleluia!
4 Men and women, young and old, Alleluia!
raise the anthem manifold, Alleluia!
and let children’s happy hearts, Alleluia!
in this worship bear their parts: Alleluia!
