1 Around the throne of God
The host angelic throngs;
They spread their palms abroad,
And shout perpetual songs:
Him first they own, Him last and best;
God ever blest, and God alone.
2 Their golden crowns they fling
Before His throne of light,
And strike the rapturous string
Unceasing, day and night:
"Earth, heaven, and sea, Thy praise declare;
For Thine they are, And Thine shall be.
3 "O Holy, Holy, Lord,
Creation's sovereign King!
Thy majesty adored,
Let all creation sing;
Who wast, and art, and art to be;
Nor time shall see Thy sway depart.
4 "Great are Thy works of praise,
O God of boundless might;
All just and true Thy ways,
Thou King of saints, in light:
Let all above, And all below,
Conspire to show Thy power and love.
5 "Who shall not fear Thee, Lord,
And magnify Thy Name?
Thy judgments, sent abroad,
Thy holiness proclaim:
Nations shall throng from every shore,
And all adore in one loud song."
6 While thus the powers on high
Their swelling chorus raise,
Let earth and man reply,
And echo back the praise:
His glory own, first, last, and best;
God ever blest, and God alone.
