Brethren, let us join to bless
Jesus Christ, our joy and peace:
Let our praise to Him be given,
High at God's right hand in heaven.
Hallelujah, praise the Lord.

Master, see, to Thee we bow,
Thou art Lord, and only Thou:
Thou, the blessed Virgin's seed,
Glory of the church and head.
Hallelujah, praise the Lord.

Thee the angels ceaseless sing,
Thee we praise, our priest and king:
Worthy is thy name of praise,
Full of glory, full of grace.
Hallelujah, praise the Lord.

Thou hast the glad tidings brought
Of salvation by Thee wrought:
Wrought for all the church, and we
Worship in thy company.
Hallelujah, praise the Lord.

We, thy little flock, adore
Thee, the Lord, for ever more:
Ever with us shew thy love
'Til we join with those above.
Hallelujah, praise the Lord.
