COMMUNION OF SAINTS
463
2 Alleluia thou resoundest, Salem, mother ever blest;
Alleluias without ending
Fit yon place of gladsome rest;
Exiles we, by Babel's waters, Sit in bondage and distressed.
3 Alleluia 1 songs of gladness
Suit not always souls forlorn:
Alleluia! sounds of sadness
Midst our joyful strains are borne;
For in this dark world of sorrow We with tears our sins must mourn.
4 Trinity of endless glory,
Hear Thy people as they cry;
Grant us all our heart's deep longing In our home beyond the sky;
There to Thee our Alleluia Singing everlastingly.
Latin, nth cent. Tr. John M. Neale, 1851
