|Holy God We
Praise thy Name
~ The Lyrics in English ~
|HOLY God, we praise Thy
of all we bow before Thee;
all on earth Thy scepter claim, all in heaven above adore Thee;
Infinite Thy vast domain, everlasting is Thy reign.
angel choirs above are raising;
Cherubim and Seraphim, in unceasing chorus praising,
fill the heavens with sweet accord; Holy, Holy, Holy Lord!
Thy sacred name to hallow:
prophets swell the loud refrain, and the white-robed Martyrs follow;
and, from morn till set of sun, through the Church the song goes on.
Father, Holy Son,
Spirit, Three we name Thee,
While in essence only One, undivided God we claim Thee:
and, adoring, bend the knee, while we own the mystery.
King of glory,
Son of God, yet born of Mary;
for us sinners sacrificed, and to death a tributary:
first to break the bars of death, Thou has opened heaven to faith
|FROM Thy high
Judge of all, again returning,
we believe that Thou shalt come in the dreaded Doomsday morning;
when Thy voice shall shake the earth, and the startled dead come forth.
|THEREFORE do we
help Thy servants whom, redeeming,
by Thy Precious Blood out-poured, Thou hast saved from Satan's scheming.
Give to them eternal rest in the glory of the Blest.
Thy people, Lord,
by a thousand snares surrounded:
keep us without sin today, never let us be confounded.
Lo, I put my trust in Thee; never, Lord, abandon me.
