1Holy, holy, holy Lord
God of Hosts! When heaven and earth,
Out of darkness, at Thy word,
Issued into glorious birth,
All Thy works before Thee stood,
And Thine eye beheld them good;
While they sang with sweet accord,
Holy, holy, holy Lord!
2Holy, holy, holy! Thee,
One Jehovah evermore,
Father, Son, and Spirit! We–
Dust and ashes– would adore:
Lightly by the world esteemed,
From that world by Thee redeemed,
Sing we here, with glad accord,
Holy, holy, holy Lord!
3Holy, holy, holy! All
Heaven’s triumphant choir shall sing,
When the ransomed nations fall
At the footstool of their King:
Then shall saints and seraphim,
Hearts and voices, swell one hymn,
Round the Throne, with full accord,
Holy, holy, holy Lord!

And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. 3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. 4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. 31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
