HOLY GOD WE PRAISE THY NAME!

Holy God, we praise your name; 
Lord of all, we bow before you; 
all on earth your scepter claim,
all in heav’n above adore you.
Infinite your vast domain,
everlasting is your reign.

Hark, the loud celestial hymn 
angel choirs above are raising; 
cherubim and seraphim
in unceasing chorus praising,
fill the heav’ns with sweet accord: 
“Holy, holy, holy Lord.”

Lo! the apostolic train 
join your 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.

Holy Father, Holy Son, 
Holy Spirit, Three we name you;
while in essence only One,
undivided God we claim you, 
and adoring bend the knee,
while we sing this mystery.
