Holy is the Lord Lyrics
Holy, holy, holy is the Lord!
Sing, O ye people, gladly adore Him;
Let the mountains tremble at His word,
Let the hills be joyful before Him;
Mighty in wisdom, boundless in mercy,
Great is Jehovah, King over all.
[Chorus] Holy, holy, holy is the Lord,
Let the hills be joyful before Him.
2. Praise Him, praise Him! shout aloud for joy,
Watchman of Zion, herald the story;
Sin and death His kingdom shall destroy,
All the earth shall sing of His glory;
Praise Him ye angels, ye who behold Him Robed in His splendor, matchless, divine. [Chorus]
3. King Eternal, blessed be His name!
So may His children gladly adore Him;
When in heav'n we join the happy strain,
When we cast our bright crowns before Him;
There in His likeness joyful awaking,
There we shall see Him, there we shall sing. [Chorus]
