1. Ye watchers and ye holy ones,
    Bright seraphs, cherubim and thrones,
    Raise the glad strain, Alleluia!
    Cry out, dominions, princedoms, powers,
    Virtues, archangels, angels’ choirs:

    Alleluia! Alleluia!
    Alleluia! Alleluia!

  2. O higher than the cherubim,
    More glorious than the seraphim,
    Lead their praises, Alleluia!
    Thou bearer of th’eternal Word,
    Most gracious, magnify the Lord.

  3. O friends, in gladness let us sing,
    Supernal anthems echoing,
    Alleluia! Alleluia!
    To God the Father, God the Son,
    And God the Spirit, Three in One.
