O holy, holy, holy Lord,
Bright in Thy deeds and in Thy name,
Forever be Thy Name adored,
Thy glories let the world proclaim.

O Jesus, Lamb once crucified!
To take our load of sins away,
Thine be the hymn that rolls its tide
along the realm of upper day.

O Holy Spirit from above,
In streams of light and glory given,
Thou source of ecstasy and love,
Thy praises ring through earth and heaven.

O God Triune, to Thee we owe.
Our every thought, our every song;
And ever may Thy praises flow
From saint and seraph’s burning tongue.
