Holy Holy Holy

Holy, Holy, Holy,
Lord God Almighty!
Early in the morning our song shall rise to Thee;
Holy Holy Holy!
Merciful and Mighty!
God in Three persons,
Blessed Trinity!

Holy Holy Holy!
All the saints adore Thee,
Casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea;
Cherubim and seraphim
Falling down before Thee,
Who wert, and art, and ever more shalt be.

Holy Holy Holy!
Tho' the darkness hide Thee,
Tho' the eye of sinful man Thy glory may not see,
Only Thou art holy;
There is none beside Thee
Perfect in power,
In love and purity

Holy Holy Holy!
Lord God Almighty!
All Thy works shall praise Thy name, in earth, and sky, and sea;
Holy Holy Holy
Merciful and Mighty!  God in Three persons,
Blessed Trinity!

--Reginald Heber, Rev. John B. Dyers
