155. Round the throne of glory

1 Round the throne of glory,
Circling cherubim
Raise their hallow'd voices,
In the sacred hymn.
True their notes are blended,
Loud the strains they raise,
Through the courts eternal,
Rolls the song of praise;
Holy, Holy, Holy,
Blessed Trinity,
Heav'n and earth are filled
With Thy Majesty!

2 Earth hath many voices
Blended with the sea,
Pealing forth the anthem
Of their praise to Thee;
Night and day it rises,
Mingling with the song
Which these sacred singers
Endlessly prolong.
Holy, Holy, Holy,
Blessed Trinity,
Heav'n and earth are filled
With Thy Majesty!

3 Where the city steeple
And the village spire
Point each faithful toiler
To His soul's desire,
There in faith we gather,
There our homage pay,
Prayer and praise we offer
On each hallowed day
Holy, Holy, Holy,
Blessed Trinity,
Heav'n and earth are filled
With Thy Majesty!

4 One our heavenly Father,
Round whose throne we meet,
One our great Redeemer,
One our Paraclete;
Bound in living union,
By one holy tie,
In Thy sacred presence,
Triune God, we cry:
Holy, Holy, Holy,
Blessed Trinity,
Heav'n and earth are filled
With Thy Majesty!

5 Raise the hymn of triumph!
Heaven and earth and sea,
Roll your thousand voices
Forth in harmony!
Voices young and aged,
Voices grand in song,
Blend them, singers holy,
Loud the strain prolong.
Holy, Holy, Holy,
Blessed Trinity,
Heav'n and earth are filled
With Thy Majesty!

Amen.
