27. 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, in every tongue.
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia,
alleluia, alleluia!

2 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!
