146. From all that dwell below the skies

1 From all that dwell below the skies
let the Creator’s praise arise:
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Let the Redeemer’s name be sung
through every land, by every tongue:
Alleluia, Alleluia,
Alleluia, Alleluia,
Alleluia!

2 Eternal are your mercies, Lord;
and eternal truth attends your word:
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Your praise shall sound from shore to shore
till suns rise and set no more:
Alleluia, Alleluia,
Alleluia, Alleluia,
Alleluia!
