Processional Hymn   “Holy, Holy, Holy”        HYMNAL #362

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, blessèd 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 sinful human eye 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, blessèd Trinity.
