Lyrics

Hallelujah! Hal­le­lu­jah!
Sing His prais­es loud and clear;
Hallelujah! He is com­ing,
Shout the tid­ings, Christ is near!
He the Sav­ior, Lord of glo­ry
Who for us sal­va­tion won;
He, the mighty, mighty Con­quer­or,
He, the ev­er­last­ing Son.

He the Lord of all the ages,
He who arched the gleam­ing skies;
Yet who walked, a lone­ly stran­ger,
Full of lov­ing sym­pa­thies;
Ever wait­ing on our weak­ness,
Knowing grief and ev­ery loss;
Dying crushed and crowned with sor­row,
Bearing sin up­on the cross.

Hallelujah! Hal­le­lu­jah!
Praise for all Thou hast en­dured;
Hallelujah! for the tri­umph
Thou, O Sav­ior, hast se­cured;
So we praise Thee, Lord of glo­ry;
Yea, with all our pow­ers we sing,
Hallelujah! Hal­le­lu­jah!
Praises to the com­ing King!
