God Is Holy


Holy, holy, holy,
Lord God Almighty.
- Revelation 4:8 -




God is holy, God is mighty,
And we praise His matchless name for He is worthy;
Let us worship and adore Him as we call upon His name,
God is holy, God is mighty.

We will praise Thee, loving Jesus,
With Thy blood on Calvary's cross Thou has redeemed us;
And the blood which Thou hast shed for us demands our fullest love,
We will praise Thee, loving Jesus.

Holy Spirit, cleanse and fill us,
Purge our hearts from every sin that hath beset us;
We need power to obey Thy Word and follow close to Thee,
Holy Spirit, cleanse and fill us.

Alleluia, Alleluia,
Let us all with one accord sing Alleluia;
'Tis the song of all the ages that we'll sing for evermore.
Alleluia, Alleluia.

God is holy, God is mighty.
- Frank Garlock -




Now unto the King eternal,
immortal, invisible, the only wise God,
be honour and glory for ever and ever.
- 1 Timothy 1:1 -




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 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 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!
- Reginald Heber -




O LORD, our LORD,
how excellent is thy name in all the earth!
who hast set thy glory above the heavens.
- Psalm 8:1 -


O come, let us worship and bow down:
let us kneel before the LORD our maker.
- Psalm 95:6 -


Who is the King of glory?
The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory.
- Psalm 24:10 -




Have a beautiful and blessed Lord's Day, sweet friends!
