1 Holy, holy, holy!
Angel voices singing;
Holy, holy, holy,
Thro' high heaven ringing.
From that temple, pure and bright,
Bathed in streams of crystal light,
Hear the everlasting hymn,
Holy, holy, holy.

2 Holy, holy, holy;
Grandest music swelling;
Holy, holy, holy,
All sweet notes excelling.
Those who conquered by his might,
Wearing now their crowns of light,
Join the everlasting hymn,
Holy, holy, holy.

3 Holy, holy, holy;
Come, let us adore him;
Holy, holy, holy,
Humbly bow before him.
Wisdom, glory, love and might,
With the seraphim unite
In the everlasting hymn,
Holy, holy, holy.
