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!  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: (Refrain)

3.	Respond, ye souls in endless rest, 
	ye patriarchs and prophets blest, 
	Alleluia!  Alleluia!  
	Ye holy twelve, ye martyrs strong, 
	all saints triumphant, raise the song: (Refrain)

4.	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: (Refrain)
