1. Jehovah! Jehovah! Thy holy name Jehovah! Adorn with might and praise! Amen! Amen! Until this earthly temple falls Into dust, when Thy word calls, Be our halls resounding, That Holy! Holy! Holy! sounding: Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
2. Sing praises; sing praises! O Son of God, Redeemer, With joy Thy praises we sing. Amen! Amen! In love Thou camest down to earth, Victor over death and grave, All to rescue, all to save, O Saviour, Saviour, Saviour of the world, Thy name be praised; Thy name be praised.
3. O Spirit, great Spirit, Most holy Spirit, guide us! Thy name we laud in our song. Amen! Amen! Thou art the Comforter come nigh, True guide to our home on high. We cling, quick’ning Majesty, O holy, holy, holy Lord to Thee. Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Special thanks to the Apostolic Christians who diligently labored to keep their rich musical heritage alive when most other denominations forsook it in the challenging battle of changing cultures. Thanks be to those souls who labored to write and compose this treasure of praise, many now only known to GOD!
