Holy Holy Holy Lord God Almighty Hymn Story and Lyrics

Story Behind Classic Hymn : Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God Almighty


The author of Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty was Bishop Heber. Bishop Heber was born in Cheshire in England and was termed a model clergyman. He wrote 57 hymns and one critic of his time said he enshrined in his hymns the lyric spirit of Scott and Byron. Tennyson said this was his favorite hymn. It expounds the Doctrine of the Trinity and gives chance and reason for the Christian to praise God, the thrice Holy, Father, Son and Holy Ghost.

Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God Almighty Lyrics


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,
who wert and art and evermore shalt be.

Holy, holy, holy! Though the darkness hide thee,
though the eye made blind by sin 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!
