By W. G. Rothery, 1909
Angel Spirits, ever Blessèd, offer praise on high unceasing,
Ever crying Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God of Sabaoth.
Saints and Martyrs Blessèd praise Thy Name, Trinity Lifegiving,
Ever crying Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God of Sabaoth.
In the angelic Song, let us join before Thy Throne on high, Blessèd, Blessèd Trinity
Ever crying Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God of Sabaoth.
Glory be to God in the highest.
With the angelic Throng, we join in Songs of Praise for ever.
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah,
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah.

Holy and immortal God, almighty Father,
…Lord our Saviour, merciful Jesu, most Holy,
…Gracious Holy Spirit:
We who represent the Cherubim mystically,
and who sing the thrice holy hymn,
To the life creating Trinity,
now lay aside all the cares of life.
That we may receive the King of all creation,
Who comes upborne invisibly, borne by hosts of angels.
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia,
 alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.
