Trinity Hymnal

Hallelujah! Raise, O raise — Alcester

Original Trinity Hymnal, #49
Psalm 113

Hallelujah! Raise, O raise
To our God the song of praise;
All his servants join to sing
God our Saviour and our King.

Blessed be for evermore
That dread Name which we adore:
Round the world his praise be sung
Through all lands, in every tongue.

O'er all nations God alone,
Higher than the heav'ns his throne;
Who is like to God most high,
Infinite in majesty!

Yet to view the heav'ns he bends;
Yea, to earth he condescends;
Passing by the rich and great,
For the low and desolate.

He can raise the poor to stand
With the princes of the land;
Wealth upon the needy shower:
Set him with the high in power.

He the broken spirit cheers:
Turns to joy the mourner's tears;
Such the wonders of his ways;
Praise his name, for ever praise!
