Representative Text

1 Holiness Thy house becomes,
Thou Almighty Saviour;
Let not sin from 'neath its domes
Drive away Thy favor;
Holiness, holiness, holiness to God!
Let the echo from our hearts
Ever sound abroad.

2 "Holiness becomes Thy house;"
Let the nations hear it!
Let each heart its sense espouse,
Let all lips declare it;
Holiness, holiness, Ever let it be
By Thy Spirit's power, Lord,
Sanctified to Thee.

3 Holiness becomes Thy house;
"Glory! glory, glory!
Sin-cleans'd souls, arouse! arouse!
Shout the wondrous story!
Holiness, holiness, holiness to God!
Children of abounding grace;
Sound the word abroad!
