Alleluia! A new work is come on hand
Through might and grace of Goddes son
To save the lost of every land.
For now is free that erst was bound
We may well sing

Now is fulfilled the prophecy
Of David and of Jeremy
And also of Isaiah.
Sing we therefore both loud and high

Alleluia, this sweet song
Out of a green branch it sprung;
God send us the life that lasteth long.
Now joy and bliss be him among
That thus can sing
