16. 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 heav'n above adore Thee:
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 heav'ns with sweet accord -
Holy, holy, holy Lord!

3 Lo, the apostolic train
Join Thy sacred name to hallow;
Prophets swell the glad refrain,
And the white-robed martyrs follow;
And from morn to set of sun,
Thru the Church the song goes on.

4 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 sing our praise to Thee.
