1Where the angel hosts adore Thee,
Thou, O God, in heaven dost reign;
At Thy word they rose around Thee,
And Thy word doth them sustain.
2Thousand times ten thousand, bending
At Thy throne, their homage pay;
Flames of fire in strength excelling,
Swift Thy pleasure to obey.
3Fashioned in a wondrous order,
Thee they serve, their Lord and King;
Grant that in our cares and dangers
They may timely succor bring.
4Praise to Thee Who hast created
Earth and heaven with all their host;
Praise to Thee, O God most mighty,
Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Amen.
Psalm104:4Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire:
Hebrews1:6And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him.
