364. O God, we praise thee, and confess

1 O God, we praise thee; and confess
that thou the only Lord
and everlasting Father art,
by all the earth adored.

2 To thee all angels cry aloud;
to thee the powers on high,
both cherubim and seraphim,
continually do cry:

3 O holy, holy, holy Lord,
whom heavenly hosts obey,
the world is with the glory filled
of thy majestic sway!

4 The apostles' glorious company,
and prophets crowned with light,
with all the martyrs' noble host,
thy constant praise recite.

5 The holy church in faith proclaims,
thy Son who for us died,
also the Holy Comforter,
our advocate and guide.
