117B. 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 ev'ry land, by ev'ry tongue.
Alleluia, alleluia!
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

2 In ev'ry land begin the song,
to ev'ry land the strains belong:
Alleluia, alleluia!
In cheerful sound all voices raise
and fill the world with joyful praise.
Alleluia, alleluia!
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

3 Eternal are your mercies, God;
your truth stands ever high and broad:
Alleluia, alleluia!
Your praise shall sound from shore to shore
till suns shall rise and set no more.
Alleluia, alleluia!
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!
