We praise you, O God:|
we acclaim you as the Lord;
All creation worships you:|
the Father everlasting.
To you all angels, all the powers of heaven:|
the cherubim and seraphim, sing in endless praise,
Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power and might:
The glorious company of apostles praise you:|
the noble fellowship of prophets praise you.
The white-robed army of martyrs praise you:|
throughout the world, the holy Church acclaims you.
Father, of majesty unbounded;
You, Christ, are the King of glory:|
the eternal Son of the Father.
When you took our flesh to set us free:|
you humbly chose the Virgin's womb.
You overcame the sting of death:|
and opened the kingdom of heaven to all believers.
You are seated at God's right hand in glory:|
we believe that you will come to be our judge.
Come then, Lord, and help your people,
