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 The 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 the Eternal Father art,
Of boundless majesty.
