"Which was, and is, and is to come,"-Rev. iv. 8. 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 a

round the glassy sea; Cherubim and seraphim falling down before Thee,

[shalt be. Which wert, and art, and evermore 3 Holy, holy, holy! though the darkness

hide Thee, Though the eye of sinful man Thy glory may not see,

[Thee, Only Thou art Holy, there is none beside

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! Lord God Almighty! God in Three Persons, Blessed Trinity!

Bp. Reginald Heber (1783-1826), 1827.


2 D.
The Might and Mercy of God.-Ps. civ.
1 O WORSHIP the King,

All glorious above;
O gratefully sing

His power and His love;
Our Shield and Defender,

The Ancient of days,
Pavilioned in splendor,

And girded with praise.
2 O tell of His might,

O sing of His grace,
Whose robe is the light,

Whose canopy space;
His chariots of wrath

The thunder-clouds form,
And dark is His path

On the wings of the storm.
3 Thy bountiful care

What tongue can recite?
It breathes in the air,

It shines in the light,
It streams from the hills,

It descends to the plain,
And sweetly distils

In the dew and the rain.
4 Frail children of dust,

And feeble as frail,
In Thee do we trust,

Nor find Thee to fail :
Thy mercies how tender,

How firm to the end,
Our Maker, Defender,
Redeemer, and Friend.

Sir Robert Grant (1788–1838), 1839. Ab.


Jesus, our King."
IYE servants of God,

Your Master proclaim,
And publish abroad

His wonderful Name;
The Name all-victorious

Of Jesus extol ;
His Kingdom is glorious,

And rules over all.
2 God ruleth on high,

Almighty to save:
And still He is nigh;

His presence we have.
The great congregation

His triumph shall sing,
Ascribing salvation

To Jesus, our King.
3 “Salvation to God,

Who sits on the throne,”
Let all cry aloud,

And honor the Son :
The praises of Jesus

The angels proclaim,
Fall down on their faces,

And worship the Lamb.
4 Then let us adore,

And give Him His right,
All glory, and power,

And wisdom and might;
All honor and blessing,

With angels above,
And thanks never ceasing,
And infinite love.

Rev. Charles Wesley (1708-1788), 1744
