Easter Alleluia (Marty Haugen)
Alleluia alleluia, alleluia!
1. Glory to God who does wondrous things
Let all the people God's praises now sing,
All of creation in splendour shall ring: Alleluia! (refrain)
2. See how salvation for all has been won
Up from the grave our new life has begun
Life now perfected in Jesus, the Son: Alleluia! (refrain)
3. Now in our presence the Lord will appear,
Shine in the faces of all of us here,
Fill us with joy and cast out all our fear: Alleluia! (refrain)
4. Call us, Good Shepherd we listen for you
Wanting to see you in all that we do,
We would the gate of salvation pass through: Alleluia! (refrain)
5. Lord, we are open to all that you say,
Ready to listen and follow your way,
You are the potter and we are the clay: Alleluia! (refrain)
6. If we have love then we dwell in the Lord,
God will protect us from fire and sword
Fill us with love and the peace of his word:! Alleluia (refrain)
