Hymns That Speak to Me Right Now (VII)

Technically, this could also be titled “A Hymn for Trinity Sunday” because it is is…

*drumroll*

Holy Holy Holy!

It was one of the first hymns I learned as a Christian and the tune (Nicaea) was used in my Summer Greek class when we were learning various Bible verses in Greek. (The second part of Revelation 4:8 was set to this tune.)

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, blessèd 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,
Who was, and is, and evermore shall 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, blessèd Trinity!
(HT: NetHymnal)

As always, we have a YouTube video with the music and words.

  1. This hymn was one of my favorites growing up! My children used to do a “Trinity Cheer” on Trinity Sunday. No idea why. They just did.

    You took Greek? I’m so impressed. I always wanted to take Latin. Greek always seemed too difficult.
