1 Sing Alleluia forth in | duteous praise,
O | citizens of heaven, and | sweetly raise
  2 Ye next who stand before the E-|-ternal Light,
In | hymning choirs re-echo | to the height
    An | endless Alle-|-luia!       An | endless Alle-|-luia!
         
3 The Holy City shall take | up your strain,
  4

Ye who have gained your palms at | length in

And | with glad songs resounding | wake     bliss,
    again Vic-|-torious ones, your chant shall | be of this —
    An | endless Alle-|-luia!       An | endless Alle-|-luia!
         
5 There, in one grand acclaim, for | ever ring
The | strains which tell the honour of your King,
  6 This is the rest for weary | ones brought back,
This | is the food and drink that | none shall lack,
    An | endless Alle-|-luia!       An | endless Alle-|-luia!
         
7 While Thee, by whom all things were | made
  8 To Thee, Eternal Son, our | voices sing;
    we praise With them, O Holy Ghost, to | Thee we bring
For | ever, and tell out in | sweetest lays   An | endless Alle-|-luia!
    An | endless Alle-|-luia!        

Early Spanish Breviary,
Tr. by John Ellerton, 1826 - 93..
