Alleluia, song of sweetness

Alleluia, song of sweetness,
voice of joy that cannot die;
alleluia is the anthem
ever dear to choirs on high:
in the house of God abiding
thus they sing eternally.

Alleluia thou resoundest,
true Jerusalem and free;
alleluia, joyful mother,
all thy children sing with thee;
but by Babylon's sad waters
mourning exiles now are we.

Alleluia cannot always
be our song while here below;
alleluia our transgressions
make us for awhile forgo;
for the solemn time is coming
when our tears for sin must flow.

Therefore in our hymns we pray thee,
grant us, bless├Ęd Trinity,
at the last to keep thine Easter
in our home beyond the sky,
there to thee for ever singing
alleluia joyfully.
