Praising the Eternal King. Alleluia.

Harp, ye blessed companies
Through the fields of Paradise. Alleluia.

Clouds in course, and birds in flight,
Thunders deep, and lightnings bright. Alleluia.

4. Floods and billows, snow and shower. Alleluia.
Skies that glow, and storms that lower,
Frost and sunbeam, tree and flower. Alleluia.

5. Beasts of earth, make answer deep. Alleluia.
Shout forth, every mountain steep,
And ye vales beneath that sleep. Alleluia.

6. Cry, thou ocean, jubilant. Alleluia.
every isle and continent,
Echo onward resonant. Alleluia.

Joining with exultant lays
In the great Creator's praise. Alleluia.

As its chorus round Him moves.
This, which Christ Himself approves. Alleluia.

Ever in your glad employ,
Answer, every maid and boy. Alleluia.

To the Father and the Son,
And the Spirit, Three in One. Alleluia.
