Verse 1:
Holy God, we praise Your Name;
Lord of all, we bow before You!
Saints on earth Your rule acclaim;
All in heav'n above adore You;
Infinite Your vast domain
Everlasting is Your reign

Verse 2:
Hark! the glas celestial hymn
Angel choirs above are raising;
Cherubim and seraphim,
In unceasing chorus praising,
Fill the heav'ns with sweet accord:
Holy, holy, holy, Lord!

Verse 3:
Lo, the apostolic train
Joins Your sacred name to hallow;
Prophets swell the glad refrain,
And the white-robed martyrs follow;
And from morn to set of sun,
Through the Church the song goes on

Verse 4:
Holy Father, Holy Son
Holy Spirit, three we name You;
Though in essence only one;
Undivided God, we claim You;
And, adoring, bend the knee
While we own the mystery.
