HYMN I.

7.7.7.7 D

James Montgomery

"Thrice Holy!"--Isaiah vi. 3.

Holy, Holy, Holy Lord,

God of Hosts! when heaven and earth,

Out of darkness at Thy word,

Issued into glorious birth,

All Thy works before Thee stood,

And Thine eye beheld them good,

While they sang with sweet accord,

Holy, Holy, Holy Lord!

Holy, Holy, Holy! Thee,

One Jehovah evermore,

Father, Son, and Spirit! we,

Dust and ashes, would adore;

Lightly by the world esteem'd,

From that world by Thee redeem'd,

Sing we here with glad accord,

Holy, Holy, Holy Lord!

Holy, Holy, Holy! All

Heaven's triumphant choirs shall sing,

When the ransom'd nations fall

At the footstool of their King:

2

Then shall saints and seraphim,

Hearts and voices swell one hymn,

Round the Throne with full accord,

Holy, Holy, Holy Lord!
