Alleluya, a new work is come on hand
A new work is come on hand.
Through might and grace of God's son,
To save the lost of every land,
For now is free what erst was bound;
We may well sing alleluya.
By Gabriel begun it was:
Right as the sun shone through the glass
Jesus Christ conceived was
Of Mary mother, full of grace;
Now sing we here alleluya.
Now is fulfilled the prophecy
Of David and of Jeremy,
And also of Ysaye;
Sing we therefore both loud and high: Alleluya.
