Alleluya, a new work is come on hand

Language: English

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.

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, the Archive was supported financially last year by about 0.03% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
