James Montgomery, 1818

Hark! the song of jubilee,
Loud as mighty thunders roar,
Or the fullness of the sea,
When it breaks upon the shore:
"Hallelujah! for the Lord
God Omnipotent shall reign;
Hallelujah!" let the word
Echo round the earth and main.
2. Hallelujah! hark! the sound,
From the depths unto the skies.
Wakes above, beneath, around
All creation's harmonies;
See Jehovah's banner furled,
Sheathed his sword; he speaks; 'tis done;
And the kingdoms of this world
Are the kingdoms of his Son.
3. He shall reign from pole to pole
With illimitable sway;
He shall reign when, like a scroll,
Yonder heavens have passed away.
Then the end; beneath his rod
Man's last enemy shall fall:
Hallelujah! Christ in God,
God in Christ is All in All.
