Lyrics

Holy, holy, holy;
Angel voices singing;
Holy, holy, holy,
Through high heaven ringing.
From that temple, pure and bright,
Bathed in streams of crystal light,
Hear the ev­er­last­ing hymn,
Holy, holy, holy.

Holy, holy, holy;
Grandest music swelling;
Holy, holy, holy,
All sweet notes excelling.
Those who conquered by His might,
Wearing now their crowns of light,
Join the ev­er­last­ing hymn,
Holy, holy, holy.

Holy, holy, holy;
Come, let us adore Him;
Holy, holy, holy,
Humbly bow before Him.
Wisdom, glo­ry, love and might,
With the seraphim unite
In the ev­er­last­ing hymn,
Holy, holy, holy.
