Representative Text

1 "Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord!"
By the Seraphim ador'd;
May thy fulness fill the earth;
Send salvation boundless forth.

2 "Stem of Jesse! branch of God!"
Spread thy glorious self abroad;
North and south, and east and west,
Gather thou, in thee, to rest.

3 "Rock of strength, for man made strong!"
Praises, Lord, to thee belong;
This foundation cannot fail;
Nor shall hell itself prevail.

4 "Might God, complete to save!
Thine the triumph o'er the grave;
Death to thee resigns the prey;
Thou hast took his pow'r away.

5 "Rest wherewith the weary rest!"
Be thy name forever blest.
"Healer of thy people's wound!"
Live, with honour, glory crown'd.
