Author: Ignaz Franz (1719-1790); Clarence Alphonsus Walworth (1820-1900) Hymnal: Common Praise (1998) #334 (1998) Meter: 184.108.40.206.7.7 Hymnal Title: Common Praise (1998) Lyrics: 1 Holy God, we praise your name;
Lord of all, we bow before you.
All on earth your sceptre 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 Lo, the apostolic train
joins your sacred name to 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 Glory through eternity:
Spirit, Word, and blest Creator,
God of gracious tenderness,
at your feet we sinners gather;
light and mercy, now, we pray,
give your people for this day. Topics: Trinity; Praise of God; Martyrs; Communion of Saints; You are God (Te Deum) Scripture: Psalm 22:22-30 Languages: English Tune Title: GROSSER GOTT
