1 Sing hallelujah, praise the Lord!
Sing with a cheerful voice;
Exalt our God with one accord,
And in His Name rejoice.
Ne'er cease to sing, O ransomed host,
Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost,
Until in realms of endless light
Your praises shall unite.

2 There we for all eternity
Shall join th'angelic praise;
And songs in perfect harmony
To God, our Savior, raise.
He has redeemed us by His blood,
And made us kings and priests to God;
For us, for us the Lamb was slain!
Praise ye the Lord! Amen.
