Hail, Holy, Holy, Holy Lord

open hymnal in the sunshine

Hail, holy, holy, holy Lord!
Whom one in three we know:
By all Thy heavenly host adored,
By all Thy church below.

One undivided Trinity
With Triumph we proclaim:
Thy universe is full of Thee,
And speaks Thy glorious name.

Thee, holy Father, we confess:
Thee, holy Son, adore:
Spirit of truth and holiness,
We praise Thee evermore.

Hail, holy, holy, holy Lord
(Our heavenly song shall be),
Supreme, essential One, adored
In coeternal Three!

Written by Charles Wesley

Copied from my grandmother’s hymnal, Hymn Book, Methodist Episcopal Church, South: Nashville, TN, 1901, Hymn #3.

Note: The hymns in this hymnal are not titled. So when I do not know the hymn, I make up a title. Such is the case with this one.
