Thou on­ly art ho­ly,
Thou on­ly the Lord;
Truth, mer­cy and judg­ment,
Shine forth in Thy Word.
Thou rul­est and reign­est
All oth­ers above;
Thy throne is eter­nal,
Thy scep­ter is love.


Thy reign ev­er­last­ing,
Thy king­dom di­vine,
Henceforth and for­ev­er
All glo­ry be Thine.

Thou on­ly art ho­ly;
In Thee is our trust;
Thy laws are un­chang­ing,
Thy sta­tut­es are just.
All na­tions and peo­ple
Before Thee shall fall;
The Fa­ther, Re­deem­er,
And Sav­ior of all.


Thou on­ly art ho­ly;
The an­gels in light
With pro­phets and mar­tyrs
Their an­thems unite.
Thou on­ly art ho­ly,
O An­cient of Days;
The bound­less cre­ation
Is filled with Thy praise.
