Al—le-lu-i-a–!
Al—le-lu-i-a–!

Image of the only God
beyond human sight and word;
glimpse of God invisible,
firstborn of all that exists.
Al—le-lu-i-a–!
For in him in heav’n and earth
all things came to be, they were,
things we see and things unseen,
thrones, dominions, rulers, pow’rs.
Al—le-lu-i-a–!
All things came to be through him,
all things came to be for him.
Before all things he is, and
in him all things hold as one.
Al—le-lu-i-a–!
Head of body, of the Church;
who in the beginning was,
firstborn one raised from the dead,
so that he should here be first.
Al—le-lu-i-a–!
For in him the fullness dwelt,
all of God was pleased to tent,
and through him to reconcile
to God all things, was God’s will –
Al—le-lu-i-a–!
– whether on earth or in heav’n,
by the peace made through his blood;
Christ, who took the Cross claims all.
Raised from death, to die no more!
Al—le-lu-i-a–!
Al—le-lu-i-a–!
Al—le-lu-i-a–!
