German.png German text

Großer Gott, wir loben dich,
Herr, wir preisen deine Stärke.
Vor dir neigt die Erde sich
und bewundert deine Werke.
Wie du warst vor aller Zeit,
so bleibst du in Ewigkeit.

Alles, was dich preisen kann,
Cherubim und Seraphinen,
stimmen dir ein Loblied an,
alle Engel, die dir dienen,
rufen dir stets ohne Ruh:
"Heilig, heilig, heilig" zu.

Durch dich steht das Himmelstor
allen, welche glauben, offen;
du stellst uns dem Vater vor,
wenn wir kindlich auf dich hoffen;
du wirst kommen zum Gericht,
wenn der letzte Tag anbricht.

Holy God, we praise thy Name,
Lord of all, we bow before thee;
All on earth thy sceptre claim,
All in heav’n above adore thee;
Infinite thy vast domain,
Everlasting is thy reign.

Hark, the loud celestial hymn
Angel choirs above are raising;
Cherubim and seraphim,
In unceasing chorus praising,
Fill the heav’ns with sweet accord:
Holy, holy, holy Lord!

Lo, the apostolic train
Join, thy sacred Name to hallow;
Prophets swell the loud refrain,
And the white-robed martyrs follow;
And, from morn till set of sun,
Through the Church the song goes on.

Holy Father, holy Son,
Holy Spirit, Three we name thee,
While in essence only One,
Undivided God we claim thee;
Then, adoring, bend the knee
And confess the mystery.
