Songs We Like to Sing
Reginald Heber John B. Dykes
Early in the morning our song shall rise to thee;
Holy, holy, holy! merciful and mighty!
All thy works shall praise thy name in earth, and sky and sea.
Holy, holy, holy, all the saints adore thee,
Casting down their golden crows around the glassy sea;
Cherubim and seraphim falling down before thee,
Thou who wast, and art, and ever more shalt be!
Holy, holy, holy, Tho's the darkness hide thee,
Tho' the eye of sinful man thy glory may not see,
Only thou art holy, there is none beside thee,
Infinite in power, in love, and purity!
