Representative Text

1 We worship thee, almighty Lord,
Our hearts revere thy gracious word
When it goes forth
From heaven o'er all the earth.
Holy, holy, holy art thou, O God!

2 Upon a mountain builded high,
Thy Church doth in thy strength rely,
And standeth sure
While earth and time endure.
Holy, holy, holy art thou, O God! A-men.

3 Through her shall every land proclaim
The sacred might of Jesus' Name,
And all rejoice
With Christian heart and voice.
Holy, holy, holy art thou, O God!

4 All nations to thy throne shall throng
And raise on high the victory song,
While cherubim
Reply to seraphim,
'Holy, holy, holy art thou, O God!'

Amen.
