Holy God We Praise Thy Name!

TLH # 250

1. Holy God, we praise Thy name; Lord of all, we bow before Thee. All on earth Thy scepter claim, all in heav'n above adore Thee. Infinite Thy vast domain, everlasting is Thy reign.

2. Hark the glad celestial hymn angels choirs above are raising; cherubim and seraphim, in unceasing chorus praising, fill the heav'ns with sweet accord: holy, holy, holy Lord.

3. Lo, the' apostles' holy train join Thy sacred name to hallow; prophets swell the glad refrain, and the white robed martyrs follow, and from morn to set of sun Thro' the Church the song goes on.

4. Holy Father, holy Son, Holy Spirit, three we name Thee; though in essence only one, undivided God we claim Thee and, adorning, bend the knee while we own the mystery. Amen.
