1 Hail, holy, holy, holy Lord!
Let pow'rs immortal sing,
Adore the co-eternal Word,
Rejoice, the Lord is King!

2 To Thee all angels cry aloud,
Thy name hosannas ring;
Around Thy throne their myriads crowd
And shout, the Lord is King!

3 Hail Him, they cry, ye sons of light,
Of joy th'eternal Spring;
Praise Him Who formed you by His might,
Rejoice, the Lord is King!

4 Hail Him, ye saints, whose love for you
Has drawn the monster's sting;
O render to the Lord His due:
Rejoice, the Lord is King!

5 Let worlds above and worlds below
In songs united sing;
And, while eternal ages flow,
Rejoice, the Lord is King!

Amen.
