1 Alleluia! Raise the anthem,
let the skies resound with praise;
sing to Christ who brought salvation,
wonderful his works and ways:
God eternal, Word incarnate,
whom the heaven of heavens obeys.

2 Long before he formed the mountains,
spread the seas or made the sky,
love eternal, free and boundless,
moved the Lord of life to die;
fore-ordained the Prince of princes
for the throne of Calvary.

3 There for us and our redemption
see him all his life-blood pour:
there he wins our full salvation,
dies that we may die no more
then arising lives for ever,
King of kings, whom we adore.

4 Praise and honour to the Father,
praise and honour to the Son,
praise and honour to the Spirit,
ever Three and ever One:
one in grace and one in glory
while eternal ages run!

Jubilate Hymns version of Come, ye faithful, raise the anthem Job Hupton (1762 - 1849) and John Mason Neale (1818 - 1866)
