Holy God, We Praise Thy Name
Unknown, c. 1775, tr. by Clarence A. Walworth, 1853; German text
|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.
2. Hark! the glad celestial hymn
3. Lo, the apostles' holy train
|4. Holy Father, holy Son,|
Holy Spirit, three we name Thee;
Though in essence only one,
Undivided God we claim Thee
And, adoring, bend the knee
While we own the mystery.
5. Thou art King of Glory, Christ;
6. From Thy high celestial home,
|7. 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. Amen.
