193. Alleluia! sing to Jesus

8.7.8.7 D

Alleluia:

Samuel Sebastian Wesley, 1868

William C. Dix, 1866

Alleluia! sing to Jesus!

His the scepter, His the throne;

Alleluia! His the triumph,

His the victory alone:

178

Hark! the songs of peaceful Sion

Thunder like a mighty flood;

Jesus out of every nation

Hath redeemed us by His blood.

Alleluia! not as orphans

Are we left in sorrow now;

Alleluia! He is near us,

Faith believes, nor questions how:

Though the cloud from sight received Him,

When the forty days were o'er:

Shall our hearts forget His promise,

"I am with you evermore"?

Alleluia! Bread of Heaven,

Thou on earth our Food, our Stay!

Alleluia! here the sinful

Flee to thee from day to day:

Intercessor, Friend of sinners,

Earth's Redeemer, plead for me,

Where the songs of all the sinless

Sweep across the crystal sea.

Alleluia! King eternal,

Thee the Lord of lords we own:

Alleluia! born of Mary,

Earth thy footstool, heaven thy throne:

Thou within the veil hast entered,

Robed in flesh, our great High Priest:

Thou on earth both Priest and Victim

In the Eucharistic feast.

Alleluia! sing to Jesus!

His the scepter, His the throne;

Alleluia! His the triumph,

His the victory alone;

Hark! the songs of holy Sion

Thunder like a mighty flood;

Jesus out of every nation

Hath redeemed us by his blood.

Amen.
