1 Hallelujah! Raise, O raise
to our God the song of praise;
all his servants join to sing
God our Savior and our King.

2 Blessed be forevermore
that dread name which we adore:
round the world his praise be sung
through all lands, in ev'ry tongue.

3 O'er all nations God alone,
higher than the heav'ns his throne;
who is like to God Most High,
infinite in majesty!

4 Yet to view the heav'ns he bends;
yea, to earth he condescends;
passing by the rich and great,
for the low and desolate.

5 He can raise the poor to stand
with the princes of the land;
wealth upon the needy show'r:
set him with the high in pow'r.

6 He the broken spirit cheers:
turns to joy the mourner's tears;
such the wonders of his ways;
praise his name, forever praise!

Freylinghausen's (PHH 34) famous hymnal, Geistreiches Gesangbuch (1704), it then was significantly altered by John Antes (b. Frederick, PA, 1740; d. Bristol, England, 1811) in a Moravian m…
