All You Nations

Lucien Deiss

All you nations, sing out your joy to the Lord: Alleluia, alleluia!
Joyfully shout, all you on earth, give praise to the glory of God;
And with a hymn, sing out with glorious praise: Alleluia!

All you nations, sing out your joy to the Lord: Alleluia, alleluia!
Lift up your hearts, sing to your God: tremendous your deeds on the earth!
Vanquished your foes, struck down by power and might: Alleluia!

All you nations, sing out your joy to the Lord: Alleluia, alleluia!
Let all the earth kneel in God's sight, extolling God's marvelous fame;
Honor God's name, in highest heaven give praise: Alleluia!

All you nations, sing out your joy to the Lord: Alleluia, alleluia!
Come forth and see all the great works that God has brought forth in great might;
Fall on your knees before the glorious throne: Alleluia!

All you nations, sing out your joy to the Lord: Alleluia, alleluia!
Parting the seas with might and power, God rescued the chosen from shame;
Let us give thanks for all these merciful deeds: Alleluia!

All you nations, sing out your joy to the Lord: Alleluia, alleluia!
God's eyes keep watch on all the earth, God's strength is forever renewed;
And let no one rebel against God's commands; Alleluia!

All you nations, sing out your joy to the Lord: Alleluia, alleluia!
Tested are we by God the Lord, as silver is tested by fire;
Burdened with pain, we fall ensnared in our sins; Alleluia!

All you nations, sing out your joy to the Lord: Alleluia, alleluia!
Over our heads wicked ones rode, we passed through the fire and the flood;
Then, Lord, you brought your people into your peace: Alleluia!

All you nations, sing out your joy to the Lord: Alleluia, alleluia!
Glory and thanks be to the Father; honor and praise to the Son;
And to the Spirit, source of life and of love; Alleluia!
