Make a joyful noise before the Lord, the king.@Psalm 98:6

John Chandler, 1841.

Chandler William H. Harper (1845-1933) (🔊 pdf nwc).

Above the clear blue sky,
In Heaven’s bright abode,
The angel host on high
Sing praises to their God;
Alleluia! They love to sing
Alleluia! They love to sing
To God their king Alleluia!

But God from infant tongues
On earth receiveth praise;
We then our cheerful songs
In sweet accord will raise:
Alleluia! We too will sing
Alleluia! We too will sing
To God our king Alleluia!

O blessèd Lord, Thy truth
To all Thy flock impart,
And teach us in our youth
To know Thee as Thou art.
Alleluia! Then shall we sing
Alleluia! Then shall we sing
To God our king Alleluia!

O, may Thy holy Word
Spread all the world around!
And all with one accord
Uplift the joyful sound:
Alleluia! All then shall sing
Alleluia! All king Alleluia!
