Worship for Trinity Sunday

362 “Holy, Holy, Holy”

   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, blessèd 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! Though the darkness hide thee,
   though the sinful human eye 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, blessèd Trinity.

Words: Reginald Heber (1783-1826), alt.
Music: Nicaea, John Bacchus Dykes (1823-1876)

Hymn 371 “Thou whose Almighty word”

1  Thou, whose almighty word chaos and darkness heard,
   and took their flight; hear us, we humbly pray,
   and, where the Gospel day sheds not its glorious ray,
   let there be light!

2 Thou who didst come to bring on thy redeeming wing
   healing and sight, health to the sick in mind,
   sight to the inly blind, now to all humankind,
   let there be light!

3 Spirit of truth and love, life-giving, holy Dove,
   speed forth thy flight! Move on the waters’ face
   bearing the gifts of grace, and, in earth’s darkest place,
   let there be light!

4 Holy and blessèd Three, glorious Trinity,
   wisdom, love, might; boundless as ocean’s tide,
   rolling in fullest pride, through the world, far and wide,
   let there be light!

Words: John Marriott (1780-1825), alt.
Music: Moscow, Felice de Giardini (1716-1796); harm.
