Ye Watchers and Ye Holy Ones
by John A. Riley

Ye watchers and ye holy ones,
Bright seraphs, cherubim, and thrones,
Raise the glad strain,
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Cry out, dominions, princedoms, powers,
Virtues, archangels, angels' choirs
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

Respond, ye souls in endless rest,
Ye patriarchs and prophets blest,
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Ye holy Twelve, and martyrs strong,
All saints triumphant, raise the song,
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

O friends, in gladness let us sing,
Triumphant anthems echoing,
Alleluia! Alleluia!
To God the Father, God the Son,
And God the Spirit, Three in One,
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
