1O Lord our God, in reverence lowly,
The host of heaven call Thee “Holy,”
From Cherubim and Seraphim,
From Angel phalanx, far extending,
In fuller tones is still ascending
The “Holy, Holy, Holy” hymn.
The Fount of joy Thou art,
E’er filling every heart,
Ever! Ever!
We, too, are Thine, and with them sing,
“Thou, Lord, and only Thou, art King!”
2They sing, in sweet and sinless numbers,
The wondrous love that never slumbers,
And of the wisdom, power, and might,
The truth and faithfulness abiding,
And over all Thy works presiding.
But they can scarcely praise aright;
For all is never sung,
Even by Seraphs’ tongue,
Never! Never!
We, too, are Thine, and with them sing,
“Thou, Lord, and only Thou art King!” Amen.
Revelation5:9And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;
Revelation19:16And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.
