164. C. M. Patrick. Te Deum.
1 O God, we praise thee, and confess,
That thou the only Lord
And everlasting Father art,
By all the earth adored.
2 To thee all angels cry aloud --
To thee the powers on high,
Both cherubim and seraphim,
Continually do cry --
3 |O holy, holy, holy Lord,
Whom heavenly hosts obey,
The world is with the glory filled
Of thy majestic sway.|
4 Th' apostles' glorious company,
And prophets, crowned with light,
With all the martyrs' noble host,
Thy constant praise recite.
5 The holy church throughout the world,
O Lord, confesses thee --
That thou eternal Father art
Of boundless majesty.
