Holy, Holy, Holy

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, Which wert and art and evermore shalt be.


Holy, holy, holy though the darkness hide Thee, Though the eye of sinful man Thy glory may not see; Only Thou art holy there is none beside Thee, Perfect in pow’r, 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.    A-men


Holy Ghost, with Light Divine

Holy Ghost, with light divine, Shine upon this heart of mine., Chase the shades of night away, Turn my darkness into day.


Holy Spirit, all divine, Dwell within this heart of mine, Cast down every idol throne, Reign supreme and reign alone.     A-men


Breath on Me, Breath of God

Breath on me, Breath of God, Fill me with life anew, That I may love what Thou dost love, And do what Thou wouldst do.


Breath on me, Breath of God, Until my heart is pure, Until my will is one with Thine, To do and to endure.


Breathe on me, Breath of God, Till I am wholly Thine, Until this earthly part of me Glows with Thy fire divine.    A-men
