O Holy, holy, holy LORD,
O Eternal GOD, Almighty One,
Be Thou for ever, and be Thou alone,
By all Thy creatures, constantly adored!
Ineffable, co-equal Three,
Who from non-entity gave birth
To angels and to men, to Heaven and to Earth,
Yet always wast Thyself, and wilt for ever be.
But for Thy mercy, we had ne'er possest
These thrones, and this immense felicity;
Could ne'er have been so infinitely blest!
Therefore all glory, power, dominion, majesty,
To Thee, O Lamb of GOD, to Thee,
For ever, longer than for ever, be!
