138. Holy God, We Praise Your Name

1 Holy God, we praise your name;
Lord of all, we bow before you;
all on earth your scepter claim,
all in heaven above adore you;
infinite your vast domain,
everlasting is your reign.

2 Hark! the glad celestial hymn
angel choirs above are raising;
cherubim and seraphim,
in unceasing chorus praising,
fill the heavens with sweet accord:
holy, holy, holy Lord.

3 All apostles join the strain
as your sacred Name they hallow;
prophets swell the glad refrain,
and the white-robed martyrs follow;
and from morn to set of sun,
through the Church the song goes on.

4 Holy Father, Holy Son,
Holy Spirit, Three we name you;
while in essence only one,
undivided God we claim you,
then, adoring, bend the knee
while we own the mystery.
