Holy, Holy, Holy

I’ve been wanting to render this hymn for some time but I felt that the piano wouldn’t do justice to this majestic sounding hymn. So, here is an organ version instead from http://www.smallchurchmusic.com

Reginald Heber was born in Apr 21, 1783 to a minister and his wife in an English village. Heber wrote 57 hymns including this one which is based on Rev 4:8-11.

Lyrics: Reginald Heber
Music: John B. Dykes

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 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!

    Chris,

    Unfortunately, pipe organs are disappearing from church instrumentation all too fast. You have offered a wonderfully moving and majestic rendering of this grand old hymn.

    Thanks.

    Neal

    Hi Neal,

    Yes, the pipe organ just sounds so grand.

    This version is not by me, but by Clyde McLennan from http://www.smallchurchmusic.com

    The pipe organ sounds great on this majestic traditional hymn. On some of the more gospel-type hymns, also, it might be nice to hear either a Hammond organ or a theater pipe organ, instead of the piano all of the time.
