Lyrics

O ho­ly Lord, our God,
By heav’n­ly hosts ad­ored,
Hear us, we pray;
To Thee the che­ru­bim,
Angels and se­ra­phim,
Unceasing prais­es hymn,
Their hom­age pay.

Here give Thy Word suc­cess,
And this Thy ser­vant bless,
His la­bors own;
And while the sin­ner’s friend
His life and words com­mend,
The Ho­ly Spi­rit send,
And make Him known.

May ev­ery pass­ing year
More hap­py still ap­pear
Than this glad day;
With num­bers fill the place,
Adorn Thy saints with grace,
Thy truth may all em­brace,
O Lord, we pray.

O Lord, our God, arise;
And now, be­fore our eyes,
Thy arm make bare;
Unite our hearts in love
Till, raised to Heav’n above,
We all its full­ness prove,
And praise Thee there.
