1 Hail holy, holy, holy Lord!
Be endless Praise to Thee!
Supreme, essential One ador'd,
In co-eternal Three.

2 Enthron'd in everlasting State,
E'er Time its Round began,
Who join'd in Council to create
The Dignity of Man.

3 To whom Isaiah's Vision show'd
The Seraph's veil their Wings,
While thee Jehovah, Lord and God,
Th' angelic Army sings.

4 To Thee by mystic Powers on high,
Were humble Praises given,
When John behold with favour'd Eye,
Th' Inhabitants of Heaven.

5 All that the Name of Creature owns,
To thee in Hymns aspire;
May we as Angels on our Thrones,
For ever join the Choir.

6 Hail holy, holy, holy Lord!
Be endless Praise to Thee;
Supreme, essential One ador'd
In co-eternal Three.
