Victory Voices



Tune: Easter Hymn

('Jesus Christ is risen today')

Revelation 19 v.1-8 parts

********

A great voice, great multitude - Alleluia!

That their cry, it strong renewed - Alleluia!

Salvation, glory, honour - Alleluia!

Praise and eternal power - Alleluia!

 

All praise to the Lord God, He - Alleluia!

Righteous judge o'er all He be - Alleluia!

For He judges evil sure - Alleluia!

Overthrows it evermore - Alleluia!

 

All around the throne do say - Alleluia!

Now is seen your sovereign sway - Alleluia!

Amen, so be it, their voice - Alleluia!

With refrain they do rejoice - Alleluia!

 

A voice said, Your God now praise - Alleluia!

All you His servants now raise - Alleluia!

Whether small or great you be - Alleluia!

Resound a victory theme - Alleluia!

 

Then voice of multitude heard - Alleluia!

As sound of great waters stirred - Alleluia!

And as sound of  thunderings - Alleluia!

This he song the each one brings - Alleluia!

 

For the Lord omnipotent - Alleluia!

Reigns, All-Powerful, no relent - Alleluia!

Let us be glad and rejoice - Alleluia!

All extol Him with one voice - Alleluia!

 

Give Him honour, for marriage - Alleluia!

Of the Lamb (Christ), Lord of each age

Has come, and the bride, His wife - Alleluia!

Is the church, He gave each life - Alleluia!

 

Fine linen, both clean and white - Alleluia!

Granted her, a glorious sight - Alleluia!

Fine linen, 'tis righteous deeds - Alleluia!

Of saints, Christ does meet their needs - Alleluia!

    Did you run out of Alleluias - there isn't one in the title. I can send you one in the post if you want. Fine write nonetheless.

      Thanks Michael. Yes, ran out of them. A guy was bit miffed that this was the refrain after EVERY line of a hymn - as it is here! He found it tiresome. never thought he would reach the end of the hymn!

            Did you mention Alleluia?

            • orchidee

              Yep. or it could be Hallelujah, or even Alleluya - see the spellings?!
