69. Holy and reverend is the Name

1 Holy and reverend is the Name
Of our eternal King.
Thrice holy, Lord! the angels cry:
Thrice holy, let us sing.

2 Holy is he in all his works,
And saints are His delight;
But sinners and their wicked ways
Shall perish from His sight.

3 The deepest reverence of the mind
Pay, O my soul, to God;
Lift with thy hands a holy heart
To His sublime abode.

4 Thou righteous God! preserve my soul
From all pollution free:
The pure in heart are Thy delight,
And they Thy face shall see.
