Blessed Lord, Our Hallelujahs

Tune: The Pleading Voice

Tune: The Pleading Voice

1 BLESSED Lord, our hallelujahs
Now to Thee we raise;
Never could we fully utter
All Thy worth and praise.
Praise the Lamb! yes, Thou art worthy,
Who didst shed Thy blood
To redeem Thy saints and make us
Kings and priests to God.

2 Yes, we praise Thee, for Thou lov'st us;
And we bless Thee, Lord,
For the peace and joy and gladness
Which Thou dost afford.
Hallelujah! Thou, Lord Jesus,
Canst not cease to love;
Thine we are, and Thine for ever,
One with Thee above.

3 Praise the Lord! Yes, hallelujah!
Who would hush the song?
Join with saints from every nation,
Every tribe and tongue.
Praise the Lamb, for He is worthy,
Sweet eternal strain!
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Praise the Lord! Amen.

Very nice tune.....and may I add that the Brother singing in the background in the first version was excellent.

I hope that in glory, we shall have a better tune....but you don't have to wait till then for an improvement. A homegrown tune is available in The 1954 LFTB and is much more robust and upbeat: T Collins' Hallelujah is no 284. It really can't be beaten even by that Hold the Fort tune which I have heard this sung to which again is suitably martial.
