#28: Holy God, We Praise Thy Name


(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)


Holy God, we praise Thy name — Lor of all, we bow before Thee!

All on earth Thy scepter claim, All in heav’n above adore Thee:

Infinite Thy vast domain, Everlasting is Thy reign.


Hark the loudĀ celestial hymn Angel choirs above are raising;

Cherubim and Seraphim, In unceasing chorus praising,

Fill the heav’ns with sweed accord — Holy, holy, holy Lord!


Lo, the apotalic train Joins Thy sacred, name to hallow;

Prophets swell the glad refrain, And the white-robed martyrs follow;

And, from morn to set of sun, Thru 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,

And adoring bend the knee, While we sing our praise to Thee.
