70. 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 holy Church throughout the world, O Lord, confesses Thee, That Thou eternal Father art, of boundless majesty. Amen.
