Hallelujah, Praise the Lord!

Full Text

1. Hallelujah, praise the Lord!
From the heav’ns and heights, give praise.
All angels too, stars and sun and moon,
The name of the Lord, come and praise.
For He created all, and He set them in their place.
He gave command that will ever stand.
The name of the Lord now be praised.

2. Hallelujah, praise the Lord!
From the earth and sea, give praise.
Hail, clouds, and snow, stormy winds that blow,
The name of the Lord, come and praise.
You mountains and all hills, trees and an’mals, great and small,
Both wild and tame, let them praise His name,
For it is exalted o’er all.

3. Hallelujah, praise the Lord!
Kings and rulers all, give praise.
Old men and youth, women, children too,
The name of the Lord, come and praise.
His name’s exalted high, and His splendor’s o’er the earth.
Those close to Him always blessed have been.
Come praise the Lord, tell of His worth.
