1. Ye watchers and ye holy ones,
Bright seraphs, cherubim and thrones,
Raise the glad strain, alleluia!

Cry out, dominions princedoms, powr's,
Virtues, archangels's   angels' choirs,

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;

2. O higher than the cherubim,
More glorious than the seraphim,
Lead their praises, alleluia!

Thou bearer of th'e ternal Word,
Most gracious   magnify the Lord,

O friends, in gladness let us sing,
Supernal anthems echoing,
Alleluia, alleluia!

To God the Father, God the Son,
And God the Spirit ThreeinOne,
