"Hallelujah! Let Praises Ring" by unknown author, 1698 THE LUTHERAN HYMNAL (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1941) 1. Hallelujah! Let praises ring! To God the Father let us bring Our songs of adoration. To Him through everlasting days Be worship, honor, power, and praise, Whose hand sustains creation. Singing, ringing: Holy, holy, God is holy,-- Spread the story Of our God, the Lord of Glory. 2. Hallelujah! Let praises ring! Unto the Lamb of God we sing, In whom we are elected. He bought His church with His own blood, He cleansed her in that blessed flood, And as His Bride selected. Holy, holy Is our union And communion. His befriending Gives us joy and peace unending. 3. Hallelujah! Let praises ring! Unto the Holy Ghost we sing For our regeneration. The saving faith in us He wrought And us unto the Bridegroom brought, Made us His chosen nation. Glory! Glory! Joy eternal, Bliss supernal; There is manna And an endless, glad hosanna. 4. Hallelujah! Let praises ring! Unto our Triune God we sing; Blest be His name forever! With angel hosts let us adore And sing His praises more and more For all His grace and favor! Singing, ringing: Holy, holy, God is holy,-- Spread the story Of our God, the Lord of Glory!This text was converted to ascii format for Project Wittenberg by Debbie Harris and is in the public domain.
