Representative Text

1 Hail, holy, holy, holy Lord!
Be endless praise to thee!
Supreme, essential One, ador'd
In co-eternal Three.

2 Enthron'd in everlasting state,
E'er time its round began,
Who join'd in council to create
The dignity of man.

3 To whom Isaiah's vision shew'd
The seraph's veil their wings,
While thee, Jehovah, Lord, and God,
Th' angelic army sings.

4 To thee, by mystic pow'rs on high
Were humble praises given,
When John behold with favour'd eye,
Th' inhabitants of heaven!

5 All that the name of creature owns,
To thee in hymns aspire;
May we as angels on our thrones,
For ever join the choir.

6 Hail, holy, holy, holy Lord!
Be endless praise to thee;
Supreme, essential One, ador'd
In co-eternal Three.
