HOLY GOD, WE PRAISE THY NAME


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.
Infinite Thy vast domain,
Everlasting is Thy reign.
2 Hark! the loud celestial hymn
Angel choirs above are raising;
Cherubim and Seraphim
In unceasing chorus praising:

Fill the heavens with sweet accord:
Holy, Holy, Holy Lord!
Fill the heavens with sweet accord:
Holy, Holy, Holy Lord!
3 Holy Father, Holy Son,
Holy Spirit, Three we name Thee,
While in essence only One,
Undivided God we claim Thee,

And adoring bend the knee,
While we own the mystery.
And adoring bend the knee,
While we own the mystery.
