339. Hallelujah!--praise the Lord, In the heights of glory

1 Hallelujah!--praise the Lord,
In the heights of glory;
Hosts of heaven, with one accord,
Shout the joyful story:
Praise him for his mighty deeds,
Praise ye him, whose grace exceeds
All that heaven in songs concedes;
Worlds of bliss! his praise record.

2 Praise him with the trumpet's tongue,
Far and wide resounding;
Praise him with the harp well strung,
While your hearts are bounding:
Praise him with the sweet-toned lyre;
Let his praise the lute inspire;
Praise him in a mighty choir--
Let his praise be loudly sung.

3 Praise him with the viol's strings,
Waking joyous feeling;
While the vault of glory rings
With the organ's pealing:
Let the cymbals ring his praise,
Wake the clarion's grandest lays,
Praise the Lord through endless days:--
Lo! his praise creation sings.
