Representative Text

1 Praise we give, and adoration,
To the blessed Trinity,
Dwelling in unclouded splendour,
Three in One, and One in Three;
With the hosts, which none can number,
Gather'd round the Throne on high,
We, our humble voices blending,
Holy, Holy, Holy cry.

2 God the Father, King Eternal,
Holy, glorious, infinite,
Strength from whom all strength proceedeth,
Fount of life and love and light:
Well-spring Thou of man's redemption,
Builder of the Church divine,
Gracious, merciful, and mighty,
True and faithful and benign.

3 Holy Jesus, Fount of blessing,
Of the Church the Corner-stone,
Binding all in sacred union,
Thou the Head, and Thou alone;
Priest, Oblation, Mediator,
Light and Life of living things,
Brightness of the Father's glory,
Lord of Lords, and King of Kings.

4 Gracious Spirit, heavenly Guardian,
With the Father and the Son,
In all glory co-eternal,
One in power, in blessing One;
Voice of all the holy Prophets,
Lord of truth and grace and might,
Scatterer of nature's darkness,
Source of universal light.

5 Alleluia to the Father!
Alleluia to the Son!
Alleluia to the Spirit!
Dread Jehovah, Three in One;
Blessing, honour, power, and glory
To Thy Name for ever be,
Alleluia, Alleluia,
Alleluia, Lord, to Thee.
