    But if ye will refuse your God, If Isr'el will rebel;

    "I'll leave them," saith the Lord, "To their own lusts a prey,
    And let them run the dang'rous road, 'Tis their own chosen way.

    "Yet, O! that all my saints Would hearken to my voice!
    Soon I would ease their sore complaints, And bid their hearts rejoice.

    "While I destroy their foes, I'd richly feed my flock;
    And they should taste the stream that flows From their eternal rock."

  • When in our music God is glorified,
    and adoration leaves no room for pride,
    it is as though the whole creation cried: Alleluia! 
    How often, making music, we have found
    a new dimension in the world of sound,
    as worship moved us to a more profound Alleluia! 
    So has the church, in liturgy and song,
    in faith and love, through centuries of wrong,
    borne witness to the truth in every tongue: Alleluia! 
    And did not Jesus sing a psalm that night
    when utmost evil strove against the light?
    Then let us sing, for whom he won the fight: Alleluia! 
    Let every instrument be tuned for praise!
    Let all rejoice who have a voice to raise!
    And may God give us faith to sing always: Alleluia!

    Your Son, the great Redeemer, came with ways both just and pure;
    and holy, reverent is his name; he makes our path secure.
