HYMN 130

C.M.S. 565, H.C 587 t.H.C. 581 
8s. 7s (FE 147)

1.  ALLELUIA, song of sweetness 

     Voice of joy that cannot die 

     Alleluia is the anthem

     Ever dear to choirs on high

     In the house of GOD abiding 

     Thus they sing eternally.

2.  Alleluia, Church victorious 

     Thou may'st lift the joyful stream 

     Alleluia, songs of triumph

     Well  befit the ransom'd train

     Faint and feeble are our praises

     While in exalt we remain.

3.  Alleluia may not always

     Be our song while here below 

     Alleluia, our transgressions 

     Make us for a while forego

     For the solemn time is coming 

     When our tears for sin must flow.

4.  Therefore in our hymns we pray Thee 

     Grant us, Blessed TRlNlTY

     At the last to keep Thine Easter

     In our Home beyond the sky

     There to Thee, for ever singing 

     Alleluia joyfully.  Amin
