Hymn 87

Play music

1 Hallelujah!raise, oh raise
To our God the song of praise;
All His servants join to sing
Loud the praises of our King.

2 Blessed be for evermore
That dread Name which we adore;
Round the world His praise be sung
Through all lands,in every tongue.

3 O'er all nations God alone,
Higher than the heav'ns His throne;
Who is like to God Most High,
Infinite in majesty?

4 Yet to view the heav'ns He bends,
Yea, to earth He condescends;
Passing by the rich and great
For the low and desolate.

5 He can raise the poor to stand
With the princes of the land;
Wealth upon the needy shower,
Set the meanest high in power.

6 He the broken spirit cheers
Turns to joy the mourner's tears;
Such the wonder of His ways:
Praise His name-for ever praise.
