O Holy Lord our God

Representative Text

1 O Holy Lord, our God,
By heavenly hosts adored,
Hear us, we pray:
To Thee the cherubim,
Angels and seraphim,
Unceasing praises bring,
Their homage pay.

2 Here give Thy word success,
And this Thy servant bless,
His labors own;
And while the sinner's Friend,
His life and words commend,
Thy Holy Spirit send,
And make Him known.

3 May every passing year
More happy still appear
Than this glad day;
With numbers fill the place,
Adorn Thy saints with grace,
Thy truth may all embrace,
O Lord, we pray.

Amen.
