METER:  87 87 D
This is the meter of such hymns as "Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus"

1.  Hal-le-lu-jah!  Pow'r and glo-ry
    And sal-va-tion are of God.
    True and just are all God's judg-ments
    Of cor-rup-tion of the earth
    Through the har-lot-ry of em-pire,
    Through the lure of wealth and greed.
    Up-on this has God brought ven-geance
    For the blood of mar-tyred saints.
2.  Hal-le-lu-jah!  Its de-struc-tion
    Gives off smoke for-ev-er-more.
    Praise our God, all you God's ser-vants,
    You who fear God, small and great.
    Hal-le-lu-jah!  Hal-le-lu-jah!
    For the Lord Al-might-y reigns.
    So re-joice and give God glo-ry,
    For the Lamb will wed his Bride.
