Sabbath Rest

Lyrics to a hymn we sang in church last week:

Round the Lord in glory seated
Cherubim and seraphim
Filled His temple, and repeated
Each to each the alternate hymn;
"Lord, Thy glory fills the heaven,
Earth is with its fullness stored;
Unto thee be glory given,
Holy, holy, holy Lord!"

Heav'n is still with glory ringing
Earth takes up the angels' cry,
"Holy, holy, holy," singing,
"Lord of Hosts, the Lord most high."
With His seraph train before Him,
With His holy church below,
Thus conspire we to adore Him,
Bid we thus our anthem flow:

"Lord, thy glory fills the heaven,
Earth is with its fullness stored;
Unto thee be glory given
Holy, holy, holy Lord!"
Thus thy glorious Name confessing,
We adopt thine angels' cry,
"Holy, holy, holy," blessing Thee,
the Lord of Hosts most high."

--Richard Mant (1837)
