1  Round the Lord in glory seated,
cherubim and seraphim
filled his temple, and repeated
each to each th'alternate hymn:

Refrain:
"Lord, Thy glory fills the heaven,
earth is with its fullness stored;
unto Thee be glory given,
Holy, holy, holy, Lord."

2  Heav'n is still with glory ringing;
earth takes up the angels' cry,
"Holy, holy, holy," singing,
"Lord of hosts, the Lord Most High!" Refrain

3  With His seraph-train before Him,
With His holy Church below,
thus conspire we to adore Him,
bid we thus our anthem flow: Refrain

4  Thus Thy glorious name confessing,
with Thine angel hosts we cry,
"Holy, holy, holy," blessing
Thee, the Lord of Hosts Most High. Refrain
