Latinised Hymns

Holy, Holy, Holy! Lord God Almighty!

Holy, Holy, Holy! Lord God Almighty!
Early in the morning our song shall rise to thee;
Holy, Holy, Holy! merciful and mighty!
God in three Persons, blessed Trinity!

Holy, Holy, Holy! all the saints adore thee,
Casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea;
Cherubim and Seraphim falling down before thee,
Which wert and art and evermore shall be.

Holy, Holy, Holy! though the darkness hide thee,
Though the eye of sinful man thy glory may not see,
Only thou art holy, there is none beside thee
Perfect in power, in love and purity.

Holy, Holy, Holy! Lord God Almighty!
All thy works shall praise thy name in earth and sky and sea;
Holy, Holy, Holy! merciful and mighty!
God in three Persons, blessed Trinity!

R.Heber

Sancte, Sancte, Sancte! Deus Omnipollens!
Mane nostra surgat ad aures vox tuas;
Sancte, Sancte, Sancte! clemens atque pollens!
Triplex Deus, beata Trinitas!

Sancte, Sancte, Sancte! sancti te precantur
iactis mare ad vitreum coronis aureis;
Cherubim et Seraphim ecce! venerantur:
eras et es et sine fine eris.

Sancte, Sancte, Sancte! tenebris celatus
pravis cum mortalibus tu non appareas,
solus es tu sanctus (num quis aemulatus?)
integra vis amor et puritas.

Sancte, Sancte, Sancte! Deus Omnipollens!
Omnibus, quot feceris, laudatus audias;
Sancte, Sancte, Sancte! clemens atque pollens!
Triplex Deus, beata Trinitas!
