23. Thee We Adore, Eternal Lord!

1 Thee we adore, eternal Lord!
We praise Thy Name with one accord,
Thy saints, who here Thy goodness see,
through all the world do worship Thee.

2 To Thee aloud all angels cry,
the heav'ns and all the pow'rs on high:
Thee, holy, holy, holy King,
Lord God of hosts, they ever sing.

3 Th'apostles join the glorious throng;
the prophets swell th'immortal song;
the martyrs' noble army raise
eternal anthems to Thy praise.

4 From day to day, O Lord, do we
highly exalt and honor Thee!
Thy Name we worship and adore,
world without end, for evermore!

5 Vouchsafe, O Lord, we humbly pray,
to keep us safe from sin this day;
have mercy, Lord, we trust in Thee;
O let us ne'er confounded be!
