Seize the Moment – Day 781

Today’s hymn focus will be

Holy, Holy, Holy

 Psalm 95:6-7(ESV)            


“Come, let us worship and bow down, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker. For He is our God, and we are the people of His pasture and the sheep of His hand.”


This hymn was written almost 200 years ago by Reginald Heber, an Anglican minister, and is used in corporate worship most frequently. Inspired by Isaiah 6:3 and Revelation 4:8, it describes the worship of God being proclaimed by the seraphim and the four living creatures.
You should also notice that the text of the song does not initiate praise, but rather encourages the singer to join in an endless song.


          Holy, holy, holy! Merciful and mighty

         God in Three Person, blessed Trinity.


We need to wake up every day, joining our voices in praise to God, the One Who was, and is, and is to come! This is not a song of cheap emotion or forced subjectivity, but rather a song of true worship and love expressed in and through our personal lives.

Holy, Holy, Holy

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 shalt 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 pow’r, 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!
