1.  Alleluia! Sing to Jesus! his the scepter, his the throne;

Alleluia! his the triumph, his the victory alone;

Hark! the songs of peaceful Zion thunder like a mighty flood;

Jesus out of every nation hath redeemed us by his blood.

2.  Alleluia! not as orphans are we left in sorrow now;

Alleluia! his 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 for forget his promise, “I am with you evermore”?

3.  Alleluia! Bread of heaven, thou on earth our food, our stay!

Alleluia! here the sinful flee to thee from day to day:

Intercessor, friend of sinners, earth’s Redeemer, plead for me,

where the songs of all the sinful sweep across the crystal sea.

4.  Alleluia! King eternal, thee the Lord of lords we own:

Alleluia! 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.

5.  Alleluia! sing to Jesus! his the scepter his the throne;

Alleluia! his the triumph, his the victory alone;

Hark! the songs of holy Zion thunder like a mighty flood;

Jesus out of every nation hath redeemed us by his blood.
