O holy, holy, holy Lord! Thou God of hosts, by all adored!

Full Text

1 O Holy, Holy, Holy Lord!
Thou God of hosts, by all adored;
The earth and heavens are full of Thee,
Thy light, Thy power, Thy majesty.

2 Loud alleluias to Thy name,
Angels and seraphim proclaim;
By all the powers and thrones in Heaven
Eternal praise to Thee is given.

3 Apostles join the glorious throng,
And swell the loud triumphant song;
Prophets and martyrs hear the sound,
And spread the alleluias round.

4 Glory to Thee, O God most high!
Father, we praise Thy majesty;
The Son, the Spirit we adore--
One Godhead, blest for evermore!

Amen.
