Sabbath Rest – Holy, Holy, Holy

We saw The Liberty Quartet perform this hymn live today and it was very powerful. Their arrangement, though classic, does vary some from the original words, so I hope you enjoy it. It speaks great truth!

Holy, Holy, Holy

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, blessed Trinity!

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.

Holy, holy, holy! Though the darkness hide thee,
though the eye of sinful man thy glory may not see,
only thou art holy; there is none beside thee,
perfect in power, in love and purity.

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, blessed Trinity.


Lyrics written by Reginald Heber, 1861
Music composed by John Bacchus Dykes
Performed by The Liberty Quartet
