Description

SATB Choir and Organ. Rhythmic interest abounds in this new and celebratory setting of a familiar text! And although this has a quatrain referring to the Ascension, an alternate text makes this beautifully crafted anthem suitable for any time of year. Give it a try.

Lyrics

Alleluia! Sing to Jesus!
His the scepter, his the throne;
Alleluia! His the triumph,
his the victory alone.
Hark! The songs of peaceful Zion
thunder like a mighty flo,Od.
Jesus, out of every nation,
has redeemed us by his blo,Od.

Alleluia! Bread of Heaven,
here on earth our help, our stay;
Alleluia! Hear the sinfulĀ 
cry to you from day to day.
Intercessor, friend of sinners,
earth's Redeemer, hear our plea,
where the songs of all the sinless
sweep across the crystal sea.

Alleluia! King eternal,
you the Lord of lords we own:
Alleluia! born of Mary,
earth your fo,Otsto,Ol, heaven your throne:
*Though the cloud from sight received him
when the forty days were o'er,

*[Though he reigns with God the Father,
saints and angels now adore,]

shall our hearts forget his promise,
"I am with you evermore"?

Alleluia! Sing to Jesus!
His the scepter, his the throne;
Alleluia! His the triumph,
his the victory alone.
Hark! The songs of peaceful Zion
thunder like a mighty flo,Od.
Jesus, out of every nation,
has redeemed us by his blo,Od.
