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,
Who was, and is, 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 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!
This is the song we sang this morning at our monthly Men's Breakfast. The lyrics are beautiful in their own right, but more so when you truly see the hugeness of our God. He was eternal before creation. Imagine that. If my brain were a computer I would get a giant error message right now. Yet he has revealed himself. He does not remain eternally distant but has actually told us who he is, in a way that only he can.

It is in His eternality, his incomparable holiness and righteousness that we find the fear of God. How can such finite creatures as us come before a being so different. But it is in His revelation to us that we learn who he is and how he brings us to him.

Thank you God for the Scriptures. Thank you God for brothers to sing and learn with. Thank you God for this day. May we bring all Glory and Honor to you!
