Lord God, Thy praise we sing; Lord God, our thanks we bring;
Father in eternity, All the world worships Thee.
Angels all and heav'nly host Of Thy glory loudly boast;
Both Cherubim and Seraphim Sing ever with loud voice this hymn:
Holy art Thou, our God! Holy art Thou, our God!
Holy art Thou, our God, the Lord of Sabaoth!
Thy majesty and godly might Fill the earth and all the realms of light.
The twelve apostles join in song With the dear prophets' goodly throng
The martyrs' noble army raise Their voice to Thee in hymns of praise.
The universal Church doth Thee Throughout the world confess to be
Thee, Father, on Thy highest throne, Thy worthy, true, and well belov'd Son,
The Comforter, ev'n the Holy Ghost, Whereof she makes her constant boast.
Thee King of all glory, Christ, we own, Th'eternal Father's eternal Son.
To save mankind Thou hast not, Lord, The Virgin Mary's womb abhorred;
Thou over camest death's sharp sting, Believers unto heav'n to bring;
At God's right hand Thou sittest, clad In th'glory with the Father had;
Thou shalt in glory come again, To judge both dead and living men.
Thy servants help whom Thou, O God, Hast ransomed with that precious blood;
Grant that we share the heav'nly rest With the happy saints eternally blest.
Help us, O Lord, from age to age, And bless Thy chosen heritage.
Nourish and keep them by Thy pow'r, And lift them up for evermore.
Lord God, we praise Thee day by day, And sanctify Thy Name always.
Keep us this day, and at all times, From secret sins and open crimes;
For mercy only, Lord, we plead; Be merciful to our great need.
Show us Thy mercy, Lord, as we Our steadfast trust repose in Thee.
In Thee, Lord, have we put our trust; O never let our hope be lost! Amen. Amen.
