Halleluiah Sing (Woodbury)

Halleluiah Sing (Woodbury)

Music for Choirs, Submitted Music (1992-1997)

A fragrant gentle zephyr rustles bush and palm

And flows through sultry stable, a soothing cooling balm

Discreetly, sweetly stealing, it lulls the newborn king

While hosts of heaven’s angels halleluia sing.

Halleluia, halleluia, halleluia sing!

Hosts of heaven’s angels proclaim the holy king.


The gentle zephyr freshens, and blowing o’er the plains.

It brings to humble shepherds angels’ joyous strains:

“Rejoice ye,” sang the angels, “Tonight the king of kings

Is born in lowly manger. Halleluias sing!”

Halleluia, halleluia, halleluia sing!

Blessed Savior comes to earth, eternal life he brings.


His loving, gentle gospel, a soothing, healing balm,

Ere flows to heavy laden, bestowing peace and calm,

And softly reassuring, his peace to faithful bring,

The Savior’s glorious gospel, let halleluia ring!

Halleluia, halleluia, halleluia sing!

Glorious, radiant gospel, the ever flowing spring. Amen
