Holy, Holy, Holy
Words by Reginald Heber

Isaiah 6:3
"And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy,
is the LORD of hosts:  the whole earth is full of his glory."


          Holy, Holy, Holy!  Lord God Almighty!
          Early in the morning our song shall rise to Thee;
          Holy, Holy, Holy, Merciful and Mighty!
          God in Three Persons, blessed Trinity!

          Holy, Holy, Holy!  All the saints adore Thee,
          Casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea;
          Cherubim and seraphim falling down before Thee,
          Which were, and art, and evermore shall be.

          Holy, Holy, Holy!  Tho' the darkness hide Thee,
          Tho' the eye of sinful man Thy glory may not see;
          Only Thou art holy; there is none beside Thee,
          Perfect in pow'r, in love, and purity.

          Holy, Holy, Holy!  Lord God Almighty!
          All Thy works shall praise Thy name, in earth, and sky, and sea;
          Holy, Holy, Holy; Merciful and Mighty!
          God in three Persons, blessed Trinity!
