Peter Wishart: Alleluya, a new work

Peter Wishart (1921-84)

Alleluya! A new work is come on hand through might and grace of Godès son to save the lost of every land. For now is free that erst was bound. We may well sing Alleluya! Now is fulfilled the prophecy of David and of Jeremy and also of Isaiah. Sing we therefore both loud and high Alleluya! Alleluya, this sweetè song out of a green branch it sprung; God send us the life that lasteth long. Now joy and bliss be him among that thus can sing Alleluya! (English 15th cent.)
