Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
Early in the morning our song shall rise to thee;
Holy, holy, holy! merciful and mighty!
God over all and blest eternally.
2 Holy, holy, holy! all saints adore thee,
Casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea; Cherubim and seraphim falling down before thee,
Who wast, and art, and evermore shall be.
3 Holy, holy, holy! tho' the darkness hide thee,
Though the eye of sinful man thy glory may not see; Only thou art holy, there is none beside thee;
Perfect in power, in love, and purity.
4 Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
All thy works shall praise thy name in earth, and sky, and sea; Holy, holy, holy, merciful and mighty!
God over all, and blest eternally.
Reginald Heber -- alt.
