Lyrics

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 realms 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.
