Holy God, we praise Thy Name;Lord 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.
Hark! the loud celestial hymnAngel choirs above are raising,Cherubim and seraphim,In unceasing chorus praising;Fill the heavens with sweet accord:Holy, holy, holy, Lord.
Lo! the apostolic trainJoin the sacred Name to hallow;Prophets swell the loud refrain,And the white robed martyrs follow;And from morn to set of sun,Through the Church the song goes on.
Holy Father, Holy Son,Holy 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.
Thou art King of glory, Christ: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 celestial home,Judge of all, again returning,We believe that Thou shalt comeIn the dreaded doomsday morning;When Thy voice shall shake the earth,And the startled dead come forth.
Therefore do we pray Thee, Lord:Help Thy servants whom, redeemingBy Thy precious blood out-poured,Thou hast saved from Satan’s scheming.Give to them eternal restIn the glory of the blest.
Spare Thy people, Lord, we pray,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.
We’ll stand by the Bible, God’s message to man,Revealing His love in Redemption’s great plan;It tells how death entered with sin and the fall,Of life freely offered through Jesus to all.
Stand by the Bible, walk by the Bible,Teach by the Bible, revealing God’s plan;Stand by the Bible, study the Bible,Live by the Bible, God’s message to man.
No book so abounding in wonderful truth,No guide so unerring for childhood and youth,No counsel so needed by man in his bloom,No comfort so sweet on the verge of the tomb.
Through ages when faith spurned the fetters of might,It shone like a star on the bosom of night;Its word was the rule of the millions who bled,Its hope was their stay when the last prayer was said.
We’ll follow thy teachings, blest word from above,We’ll live by thy pattern of infinite love,Believing, obeying, and watching with prayer,Till grace shall for Heaven our spirits prepare.
