Holy God We Praise Thy Name
There are eight verses, but only four are commonly sung:
- 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.
- 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.
- Lo! the apostolic train
- Join the sacred Name to hallow;
- Prophets swell the loud 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 Thee;
- While in essence only One,
- Undivided God we claim Thee;
- And adoring bend the knee,
- While we own the mystery.
