O God! we praise Thee, and confess
That Thou the only Lord
And everlasting Father art,
By all the earth adored.
To Thee all angels cry aloud;
To Thee the powers on high,
Both cherubim and seraphim,
Continually do cry:
“O holy, holy, holy Lord,
Whom heavenly hosts obey,
The world is with the glory filled
Of Thy majestic sway.”
The apostles’ glorious company,
And prophets crowned with light,
With all the martyrs’ noble host,
Thy constant praise recite.
The holy church throughout the world,
O Lord, confesses Thee,
That Thou the Eternal Father art,
Of boundless majesty.
