An Anthology in Thirty Volumes.  1917.
 
Hail! Holy, Holy, Holy Lord
By Charles Wesley (1707–1788)
 
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        5
  With triumph we proclaim:
The universe is full of thee,
  And speaks thy glorious name.
 
Thee, holy Father we confess;
  Thee, holy Son adore;        10
Thee, Spirit of true holiness
  We worship evermore.
Thine incommunicable right,
  Almighty God, receive,
Which angel-choirs and saints in light        15
  And saints embodied give.
 
Three Persons equally divine
  We magnify and love;
And both the choirs ere long shall join
  To sing thy praise above.        20
Hail! holy, holy, holy Lord
  (Our heavenly song shall be),
Supreme, essential One adored
  In coeternal Three!
