2 Ye powers, who stand before the eternal Light, In hymning choirs 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  In blissful answering strains ye thus rejoice To render to the Lord with thankful voice
An endless Alleluia.
5  Ye who have gained at length your palms in bliss, Victorious ones, your chant shall still be this,
An endless Alleluia.
6  There, in one grand acclaim, for ever ring                                       . The strains which tell the honor of your King,
An endless Alleluia.
7  This is sweet rest for weary ones brought back, This is glad food and drink which ne'er shall lack
An endless Alleluia.
8  While Thee, by Whom were all things made, we praise Forever, and tell out in sweetest lays
An endless Alleluia.
9  Almighty Christ, to Thee our voices sing Glory for evermore; to Thee we bring
An endless Alleluia.
(Latin, 5th Cent.) Tr. Rev. John Ellerton, i8
