HOLY, HOLY, HOLY, LORD GOD ALMIGHTY!

Early in the morning

Our song shall rise to Thee:

Holy, holy, holy, merciful and mighty,

God in three Persons, blessèd Trinity!

 

Holy, holy, holy! all the saints adore Thee,

Casting down their golden crowns

Around the glassy sea;

Cherubim and seraphim falling down before Thee,

Who were, and are, and ever more shall be.

 

Holy, holy, holy! though 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.

 

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 in three Persons, blessèd Trinity!                                 Reginald Heber.
