English.png English text

O come, let us with one accord
Lift up our voice and praise the Lord;
Let us this morning bless his name,
And laud and magnify the same.

Let universal nature raise
A cheerful voice to give him praise:
Let all the world his glory sing
Who is their Saviour, God, and King.

For by his word the heav'ns were made,
The earth's foundation also laid:
All things were done at his command,
Which through all ages firmly stand.

Therefore let heav'n and earth agree
To sound his praise in unity,
And let us here with one accord
Sing Hallelujah, praise the Lord.
Hallelujah, praise the Lord.
