Te Deum Laudamus
By Richard Mant (1776–1848)
ROUND the Lord in glory seated
  Cherubim and Seraphim
Filled His temple, and repeated
  Each to each th’ alternate hymn.
“Lord, Thy glory fills the heaven,        5
  Earth is with its fulness stored;
Unto Thee be glory given,
  Holy, holy, holy Lord!”
Heaven is still with glory ringing,
  Earth takes up the angels’ cry,        10
“Holy, holy, holy,”—singing,
  “Lord of hosts, the Lord most high.”
With His seraph train before Him,
  With His holy Church below,
Thus conspire we to adore Him,        15
  Bid we thus our anthem flow:—
“Lord, Thy glory fills the heaven,
  Earth is with Thy fulness stored,
Unto Thee be glory given,
  Holy, holy, holy Lord!”        20
