Representative Text

From the calm of sleep awaking,
Fall we now before Thy feet,
And with angel hymns adoring,
God Almighty we would greet.
Holy, Holy, Holy Thou,
With Thy mercy bless us now.

From the couch of rest uprising,
In my soul with brightness shine,
Open Thou my lips to praise Thee,
Blessed Trinity Divine--
Holy, Holy, Holy Thou,
With Thy mercy bless us now.

When the Judge shall come for Judgment,
And our deeds are brought to light,
Fearful we shall lift our voices
In the middle of the night--
Holy, Holy, Holy Thou,
With Thy mercy bless us now.
