When in our music God is glorified, and adoration leaves no room for pride, it is as though the whole creation cried, "Alleluia!"
How often, making music, we have found a new dimension in the world of sound, as worship moved us to a more profound Alleluia!
So has the Church, in liturgy and song, in faith and love, through centuries of wrong, borne witness to the truth in every tongue: Alleluia!
And did not Jesus sing a psalm that night when utmost evil strove against the Light? Then let us sing, for whom he won the fight: Alleluia!
Let every instrument be tuned for praise! Let all rejoice who have a voice to raise! And may God give us faith to sing always: Alleluia!
