216. Hail, holy, holy, holy, Lord!

1 Hail, holy, holy, holy, Lord!
Let powers immortal sing;
Adore the co-eternal Word,
Rejoice, the Lord is King!

2 To Thee all angels cry aloud,
Thy Name hosannas ring;
Around Thy throne their myriads crowd,
And shout, the Lord is King!

3 Hail Him, they cry, ye sons of light,
Of joy the eternal Spring;
Praise Him who formed you by His might,
Rejoice, the Lord is King!

4 Hail Him, ye saints, whose love for you
Has drawn the monster's sting;
O render to the Lord His due;
Rejoice, the Lord is King!

5 Cry out and shout, fair Zion's land!
Ye priests, your offerings bring;
Watchmen, that on her ramparts stand,
O shout, the Lord is King!

6 Let worlds above and worlds below,
In songs united sing;
And, while eternal ages flow,
Rejoice, the Lord is King!
