709. Ye Watchers and Ye Holy Ones

1 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,
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

2 Respond, ye souls in endless rest,
Ye patriarchs and prophets blest,
Alleluia, Alleluia!
Ye holy Twelve, ye martyrs strong,
All saints triumphant, raise in song,
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

3 O friends, in gladness let us sing,
Triumphant anthems echoing,
Alleluia, Alleluia!
To God the Father, God the Son,
And God the Spirit, Three-in-One,
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
