        1. Holy God, we praise thy name;
        Lord of all, we bow before Thee.
        All on earth Thy scepter claim,
        All in heaven above adore Thee.
        Infinite Thy vast domain,
        Everlasting is Thy reign.

        2. Hark! the glad celestial hymn
        Angel choirs above are raising;
        Cherubim and seraphim,
        In unceasing chorus praising,
        Fill the heavens with sweet accord:
        Holy, holy, holy, Lord!

        3. Lo, the apostles' holy train
        Join Thy sacred name to hallow;
        Prophets swell the glad refrain,
        And the white-robed martyrs follow,
        And from morn to set of sun
        Through the Church the song goes on.

        4. Holy Father, holy Son,
        Holy Spirit, three we name Thee;
        Though in essence only one,
        Undivided God we claim Thee
        And, adoring, bend the knee
        While we own the mystery.
