158. 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 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 own the mystery.
