Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

46. Round the Lord in Glory Seated

1 Round the Lord in glory seated,
cherubim and seraphim
filled his temple, and repeated
each to each th'alternate hymn:

Refrain:
"Lord your glory fills the heaven,
earth is with its fulness stored;
unto you be glory given,
holy, holy, holy Lord!"

2 Heav'n is still with glory ringing,
earth takes up the angels' cry,
"Holy, holy, holy," singing,
"Lord of hosts, the Lord Most High." (Refrain)

3 With his seraph train before him,
with his holy church below,
thus unite we to adore him,
bid we thus our anthem flow: (Refrain)

4 Thus your glorious name confessing,
we adopt your angels' cry,
"Holy, holy, holy," blessing
you, the Lord of Hosts Most High. (Refrain)
