Great God of all, Holy Creator,

Father and LORD of heaven, earth, and sea,
Humbly we fall adoring before Thee;

Receive our prayers, our praises, Most High!
Infinite beauty, power, and skill,

Shine over all Thy glorious works.
Oh, who can count the stars that fill

The spacious firmament of heaven?
Great is Thy love, O LORD, to man;

Mercy and holy peace are Thine;
Grant us, then, grace with thankful voice

To praise Thy Name in songs of joy.
Great God of all, Holy Creator,
Receive our prayers and praises, Most High!

704 Hear my crying, O turn not Thy mercy from me. LORD, have mercy on us! Blessed be the LORD GOD, even the LORD GOD of Israel. Have compassion on us !




We worship, we confess Thee LORD,
Eternal Father, King adored.
All things on Earth with one accord

Exalt Thy mighty Name.
The Angel choirs their voices raise ;
The Host of Heaven Thy power displays;
Thee Cherubim, with endless praise,

And Seraphim, proclaim.

“All Holy, Holy, Holy, Thou !
“Thy glory Earth and Heaven avow:
LORD God of Hosts, to Thee we bow,

“Our Maker, Life, and Light!”
To Thee Thy great Apostles cry;
Thee sainted Prophets magnify;
With white-robed Martyrs' songs on high

Doth Thy whole Church unite.

O CHRIST, the Father's only Son,
With Him, and God the Spirit, One,
Before Creation's work begun,

Thou, glorious King, dost reign :
Yet didst not Thou, Redeemer, scorn
To be of lowly Virgin born,
For those their fallen state that mourn,

Salvation to obtain.

For us Thou laid'st Thy power aside,
For us to conquer Death hast died,
For all who in Thy faith abide,

And Thee their Saviour own.
Now in God's might at His right hand,
Thou sendest forth Thine high command;
And lo! Heaven's portals open stand,

And crowds approach Thy Throne.
