Halleuja! Lob, Preis un Ehr'

Full Text

1 Hallelujah! Let praises ring!
To God the Father let us bring
Our songs of adoration.
To Him thro' everlasting days
Be worship, honor, pow'r, and praise,
Whose hand sustains creation.
Singing, ringing:
Holy, holy,
God is holy,--
Spread the story
Of our God, the Lord of Glory.

2 Hallelujah! Let praises ring!
Unto the Lamb of God we sing,
In whom we are elected.
He bo't His Church with His own blood,
He cleansed her in that blessed flood,
And as His bride selected.
Holy, holy
Is our union
And communion.
His befriending
Gives us joy and peace unending.

3 Hallelujah! Let praises ring!
Unto the Holy Ghost we sing
For our regeneration.
The saving faith in us He wrought
And us unto the Bridegroom bro't,
Made us His chosen nation.
Glory! Glory!
Joy eternal,
Bliss supernal;
There is manna
And an endless, glad hosanna.

4 Hallelujah! Let praises ring!
Unto our Triune God we sing;
Blest be His name forever!
With angel hosts let us adore
And sing His praises more and more
For all His grace and favor!
Singing, ringing:
Holy, holy,
God is holy,
Spread the story
Of our God, the Lord of Glory!

Amen.
