Hallelujah, For the Lord Reigneth.

Hallelujah! best and sweetest

Of the hymns of praise above;

Hallelujah! thou repeatest,

Angel-host, these notes of love;

This ye utter,

While your golden harps ye move.

Hallelujah! strains of gladness

Comfort not the faint and worn;

Hallelujah! sounds of sadness

Best become the heart forlorn:

Our offences

We with bitter tears must mourn.

But our earnest supplication,

Holy God! we raise to Thee;

Visit us with Thy salvation,

Make us all Thy peace to see!

Hallelujah!

Ours at length this strain shall be.
