Pleasant Praises

Tune: Lasst Uns Erfreuen

('All creatures of our God and King')

Psalm 149 v.1-6


Praise you the LORD, sing a new song

Unto Him be it day, night long

Alleluia, Alleluia!

Make praise among His people here

In the congregation draw near

And worship Him with godly fear

Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!


Rejoice in Him who has you made

His creation's great works displayed

Alleluia, Alleluia!

Let His people be joyful in

Their Lord and King, fresh praise begin

Holy Spirit, rise up within

Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!


Let them praise His name in the dance

Musical instruments enhance

Alleluia, Alleluia!

Of His glory, for the LORD takes

Pleasure in His people, He makes

Them joyful, each to Him awakes

Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!


For the LORD He will beautify

The meek with salvation, no lie

Alleluia, Alleluia!

let people rejoice in glory

Sing aloud on their beds, so be

Or walking, sitting, standing free

Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!


Let the high praises of God be

In their mouths, and expressively

Alleluia, Alleluia!

A two-edged sword in their hand be

Word of God, defeats enemy

In the battle spiritually

Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!
