1 We praise, we worship you, O God,
your sovereign power we sound abroad;
all nations bow before your throne,
and you the Lord eternal own.
2 Loud hallelujahs to your name
the angels and all hosts proclaim;
by all the powers and thrones in heaven
unceasing praise to you is given.
3 O holy, holy, holy Lord,
the God of hosts, by all adored,
through heaven and earth your creatures see
the glory of your majesty.
4 Apostles join the glorious throng
and swell the loud triumphant song;
enraptured prophets hear the sound
and spread the hallelujahs round.
5 Victorious martyrs join their praise
and shout the omnipotence of grace,
while all the church throughout the earth
acknowledge and extol your worth.
6 Glory to you, O God most high!
Father, we praise your majesty:
the Son, the Spirit we adore
Creator, Saviour, Comforter.
