Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

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.
