1 O God, we praise thee; and confess that thou the only Lord and everlasting Father art, by all the earth adored.
2 To thee all angels cry aloud; to thee the powers on high, both cherubim and seraphim, continually do cry:
3 O holy, holy, holy Lord, whom heavenly hosts obey, the world is with the glory filled of thy majestic sway!
4 The apostles' glorious company, and prophets crowned with light, with all the martyrs' noble host, thy constant praise recite.
5 The holy church in faith proclaims, thy Son who for us died, also the Holy Comforter, our advocate and guide.
