Bishop Wordsworth, alt.

HALLELUJAH! Hallelujah!

Hearts to heaven and voices raise;

Sing to God a hymn of gladness,

Sing to God a hymn of praise;

He who on the cross a victor

For the world’s salvation bled,

Jesus Christ the King of glory,

Now is risen from the dead.


Christ is risen, Christ the firstfruits

Of the holy harvest field,

Which will all its full abundance,

At His glorious advent, yield;

Then the golden ears of harvest

Will before His presence wave,

Rising in His sunshine joyous,

From the furrows of the grave.


Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

Glory be to God above!

Hallelujah to the Saviour,

Fount of life and source of love;

Hallelujah to the Spirit;

Let our high ascription be,

Hallelujah, now and ever,

To the blessed Trinity.
