About four years ago J. Thur­low Kom­mer, a Phil­a­del­phia [Penn­syl­van­ia] bus­i­ness man, wrote, Sing out your hal­le­lu­jahs, and of its in­cep­tion he writes, I had been think­ing of God’s tre­men­dous love, par­ti­cu­larly as ex­pressed in the gift of His Son, and the great ob­li­ga­tion rest­ing up­on all His crea­tures to give Him praise. Mr. Kom­mer has been writ­ing re­li­gious verse for about ten years.

Lyrics

Sing out your hallelujahs,
Ye ransomed of the Lord!
Sing praise to God our Father,
By myriad hosts adored!
Sing of His grace and glory,
Sing of His love and might!
Join with the choir of Heaven
To sound His praise aright!

Sing out your hallelujahs!
Sing of the victory won
O’er Satan’s demon forces
By God’s eternal Son!
Sing of the fount of cleansing!
Sing of the lost restored!
Sing praises without ceasing
To your redeeming Lord.

Sing out your hallelujahs,
And let your voices rise
In loudest acclamation
Until they reach the skies!
Sing till the songs of Heaven
Shall blend with songs of earth
In glory, laud and honor
To our Redeemer’s worth.
