HARK! the song of jubilee,

Loud as mighty thunders’ roar,

Or the fulness of the sea

When it breaks upon the shore:

Hallelujah! for the Lord

God Omnipotent shall reign;

Hallelujah! let the word

Echo round the earth and main.


Hallelujah! hark! the sound,

From the center to the skies,

Wakes above, beneath, around,

All creation’s harmonies:

See Jehovah’s banner furled,

Sheathed His sword: He speaks, ’tis done;

And the kingdoms of this world

Are the kingdom of His Son.


He shall reign from pole to pole

With illimitable sway;

He shall reign when, like a scroll,

Yonder heavens have passed away:

Then the end; beneath His rod

Man’s last enemy shall fall;

Hallelujah! Christ in God,

God in Christ, is all in all.
