1 O God, we praise thee; and confess
that thou the only Lord
and everlasting Father art,
by all the earth adored.
2 To thee all angels cry aloud;
to thee the pow'rs on high,
both cherubim and seraphim,
continually do cry.
3 O holy, holy, holy Lord,
whom heav'nly hosts obey,
the world is with the glory filled
of thy majestic ray.
4 Th'apostles' glorious company
and prophets crowned with light,
with all the martyrs' noble host,
thy constant praise recite.
5 The holy church throughout the world,
O Lord, confesses thee,
that thou Eternal Father art,
of boundless majesty;
6 Thine honored, true, and only Son;
and Holy Ghost, the Spring
of never-ceasing joy: O Christ,
of glory thou art King.
