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!
