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.
