This is simply one of the best songs of all time. As you read it I hope your thoughts are turned to the greatness of God. Who is like Jehovah? May you understand the blessings you can have in Christ and may you be glad with the joy of His presence.

Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty

By Reginald Heber (1783-1826)

1.      Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty!

Early in the morning our song shall rise to Thee;

Holy, Holy, Holy, merciful and mighty!

God in Three Persons, blessed Trinity!

2.      Holy, Holy, Holy! all the saints adore Thee,

Casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea;

Cherubim and seraphim falling down before Thee,

Which wert, and art, and evermore shalt be.

3.      Holy, Holy, Holy! thought the darkness hide Thee,

Though the eye of sinful man Thy glory may not see,

Only Thou art holy, there is none beside Thee,

Perfect in power, in love, and purity.

4.      Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty!

All Thy works shall praise Thy name in earth, and sky, and sea;

Holy, Holy, Holy, merciful and mighty!

God in Three Persons, blessed Trinity!

This is one of those songs where you want people to raise their voices and sing out to God. If possible you want to hear piano and organ playing together. You can through in some string, brass and woodwind instruments too. It just makes me want to praise God for who He is and that He alone is God and there is no other. Hallelujah!

Stay faithful and hopeful because our God reigns,

Bill (a fellow-laborer)

Romans 15:13; Revelation 4:1-11
