Sing Alleluia forth in duteous Praise – Hymn

1. Sing Alleluia forth in duteous praise
O citizens of heaven and sweetly raise,
An endless Alleluia!

2. Ye, powers who stand before
th’ Eternal Light
In songs of praise re-echo to the height,
An endless Alleluia!


3. The Holy City shall take up your strain,
And with glad songs
resounding wake again,
An endless Alleluia!


4. This is sweet rest for weary
ones brought back
This is the food and drink
which none shall lack,
An endless Alleluia!

5. In blissful antiphons you thus rejoice,
To render to the Lord with thankful voice,
An endless Alleluia!


6. Ye, who have gained at length
your palms in bliss
Victorious ones, your chants shall still be this,
An endless Alleluia!


7. There in one grand acclaim, forever ring,
The strains which tell the
honour of your King
An endless Alleluia!


8. While You, by whom were all
things made we praise,
For ever, and tell out in sweetest lays,
An endless Alleluia!


9. ff Almighty God to You our voices sing,
Glory for evermore, to You we bring,
An endless Alleluia! Amen

[Mozarabic Breviary 5th]
