1 Holy and reverend is the name
Of our eternal King;
Thrice holy Lord! the angels cry:
Thrice holy let us sing.
2 Holy is He in all His works,
And saints are His delight;
But sinners and their wicked ways
Shall perish from His sight.
3 The deepest reverence, homage, love,
Pay, O my soul, to God;
Lift with thy hands a holy heart
To His sublime abode.
4 Thou, righteous God! preserve my soul
From all pollution free;
The pure in heart are Thy delight,
And they Thy face shall see.

Holy and reverend is [His] the Name. J. Needham. [Holiness of God.] In 1768 J. Needham published in his Hymns Devotional and Moral, No. 25, in 8 stanzas of 4 lines, a hymn beginning as above. This was in common use for many years. In 1853 George Rawton rewrote stanzas i., iii., and viii., and added another (ii.), thus forming a hymn of 4 stanzas. This was given in the Baptist Psalms & Hymns, 1858, and has passed into several collections, especially in America. In some collections it reads "Holy and reverend is His name." The ascription of the cento is J. Needham, 1768; G. Ramon, 1853.
