?. Alleluya, a new work is come on hand [sung text checked 1 time]

Alleluya, a new work is come on hand
Through might and grace of Gode's son
To save the lost of ev'ry land.
Alleluya. For now is free that erst was bound ;
We may well sing Alleluya.

Now is fulfilled the prophecy
Of David and of Jeremy
And also of Isaiah; Alleluya,
Sing we therefore both loud and high: Alleluya.

Alleluya, this sweete song,
Out of a green branch it sprung.
God send us the life that lasteth long ! Alleluya,
Now joy and bliss be him among
That thus can sing Alleluya.
