208. Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord

Six 7's

St. Athanasius:

Edward J. Hopkins, 1872

Christopher Wordsworth, 1862

Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord

God of hosts, eternal King,

By the heavens and earth adored;

Angels and archangels sing,

Chanting everlastingly

To the blessed Trinity.

Since by thee were all things made,

And in thee do all things live,

Be to thee all honour paid,

Praise to thee let all things give,

Singing everlastingly

To the blessed Trinity.

Thousands, tens of thousands stand,

Spirits blest before thy throne,

Speeding thence at thy command;

And when thy command is done,

Singing everlastingly

To the blessed Trinity.

Cherubim and seraphim

Veil their faces with their wings;

Eyes of angels are too dim

To behold the King of kings,

While they sing eternally

To the blessed Trinity.

Thee, apostles, prophets, thee,

Thee, the noble martyr band,

Praise with solemn jubilee,

Thee, the Church in every land;

Singing everlastingly,

To the blessed Trinity.

Alleluia! Lord, to thee,

Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,

Three in One, and One in Three,

Join we with the heavenly host,

Singing everlastingly

To the blessed Trinity.

Amen.
