Ye watchers and ye holy ones

Ye watchers and ye holy ones,
bright seraphs, cherubim, and thrones,
raise the glad strain,
Alleluia!
Cry out, dominions, princedoms, powers,
virtues, archangels, angels' choirs,

Refrain:
Alleluia! alleluia! alleluia!
Alleluia! alleluia!


O higher than the cherubim,
more glorious than the seraphim,
lead their praises,
Alleluia!
Thou bearer of the eternal Word,
most gracious, magnify the Lord,

Refrain:
Alleluia! alleluia! alleluia!
Alleluia! alleluia!


Respond, ye souls in endless rest,
ye patriarchs and prophets blest,
Alleluia,
alleluia!
Ye holy twelve, ye martyrs strong,
all saints triumphant, raise the song,

Refrain:
Alleluia! alleluia! alleluia!
Alleluia! alleluia!


O friends, in gladness let us sing,
supernal anthems echoing,
Alleluia,
alleluia!
To God the Father, God the Son,
and God the Spirit, Three in One,

Refrain:
Alleluia! alleluia! alleluia!
Alleluia! alleluia!
