1 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 !

2 Holy, Holy, Holy! all the saints adore Thee,

Casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea, Cherubim and seraphim falling down before Thee,

Which wert, and art, and evermore shalt be.

3 Holy, Holy, Holy! though the darkness hide Thee,

Though 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.

4 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! Amen.

1 Our Father, who dost lead

The children of Thy grace,
A new-born and believing seed,

Through this wide wilderness;
Thy providential care

In dangers past we own ;
Still let Thine arm be ever near,

Still let Thy love be shown.
2 O Saviour, Lamb of God!

Our gracious, dying Friend !
Reveal the virtue of Thy blood,
On us Thy mercy

send :
Thou art a Master kind,

With voice and person sweet ;
Bestow on us a loving mind,

And keep us at Thy feet.

3 Thou, Holy Spirit, art

Of truth the promised Seal ;
Convincing power Thou dost impart,

And Jesus' grace reveal ;
Oh breathe Thy quickening breath,

And light and life afford ;
Instruct us how to live by faith,

And glorify the Lord.

75 & 6s.

1 Meet and right it is to sing,

In every time and place,
Glory to our heavenly King,

The God of truth and grace:
Join we then with sweet accord,

All in one thanksgiving join;
Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord,

Eternal praise be Thine.

2 Thee, the first-born sons of light,

In choral symphonies,
Praise by day, day without night,

And never, never cease ;
Angels and archangels, all

Praise the mystic Three in One ;
Sing, and stop, and gaze, and fall

O'erwhelmed before Thy throne.

3 Father, God, Thy love we praise,

Which gave Thy Son to die;
Jesus, full of truth and grace,

Alike we glorify;
Spirit, Comforter divine,

Praise by all to Thee be given,
Till we in full chorus join,

And earth is turned to heaven.
