Redeemed Hymn 33 – Alleluia, Song of Sweetness

“I heard a great voice of many people in heaven saying Hallelujah” Rev. 19:1

1 Alleluia, song of sweetness,

Voice of joy that cannot die,

Alleluia is the anthem

Ever dear to choirs on high,

In the house of God abiding

Thus they sing eternally.


2 Alleluia, church victorious

Thou may’st lift the joyful strain,

Alleluia songs of triumph

Well befit the ransom’d train

Faint and feeble are our praises

While in exile we remain.


3 Alleluia may not always

Be our song while here below;

Alleluia, our transgressions,

Make us for a while forego;

For the solemn time is coming

When our tears for sin must flow.


4 Therefore in our hymns we pray thee,

Grant us, blessed trinity,

At the last to keep Thine Easter

In our Home beyond the sky,

There to Thee for ever singing

Alleluia joyfully.
