We praise you, O God, and acclaim you as Lord.
All creatures bless you, Father everlasting:
to you all angels, all the host of heaven,
sing without ceasing.
Their hymn is ever: "Holy, holy, holy,
Lord God almighty, heaven and earth give glory."
Apostles, prophets, martyrs throng to praise you,
joined by the whole Church.
Praise to the Father, of unbounded glory,
and only true Son, worthy of all worship,
and Holy Spirit, source of truth and comfort:
God in three Persons.
Christ, king of glory, only Son eternal,
you took our nature, from the Virgin's womb borne,
and brought us freedom, overcoming death's sting,
Now high exalted, you will come to judge us.
Lord, help your people, bought by your own life's blood;
bring us to glory, that with saints and angels,
there we may praise you.
