Hallelujah! Sing to Jesus!

Hallelujah! Sing to Jesus!
His the sceptre, his the throne;
Hallelujah! His the triumph,
His the victory all alone.
Hark! The songs of peaceful Zion
thunder like a mighty flood;
Jesus out of every nation
has redeemed us by his blood.

Hallelujah! Not as orphans
are we left in sorrow now;
Hallelujah! 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 ever more”?

Hallelujah! King eternal,
Thee the Lord of lords we own;
Hallelujah! 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.
