1 Holy Lord God of Hosts, we bend before Thee;
Earth and sea in humility adore thee.
Thou alone art of ev’ry gift the Giver,
Strong and mighty from evil to deliver,
Hear our prayer, as before Thy throne we fall,
King of kings, everlasting Lord of all.
2 Holy Lord God of Hosts, forever glorious;
Over darkness and death Thou art victorious.
Cherubim, Seraphim and angels, praising,
Fill Thy courts, never-ending praises raising,
Bend Thine ear, Holy One, our pray’r attend;
Thou art worthy of praise, world without end.
3 Holy Lord, God of Hosts, in deep contrition
We would yield to Thy will complete submission.
Cast us not from Thy presence, we implore Thee,
Lift us up from the dust to stand before Thee.
Holy Lord God, we cry to Thee again,
Bend Thine ear; hear our pray’r, Amen, Amen.
