Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty

Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty!
Unto everlasting days 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;
Heaven's elders cast their crowns down by the glassy sea;
Cherubim and seraphim worship too before Thee,
Who 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 power, in love, and purity.

Stanza 1 - blessed Trinity

Rev. 4:8b ... Holy, holy, holy, Lord God the Almighty, who was and who is and who is coming.

Footnotes 1- The mentioning of holy three times, as in Isa. 6:3, implies that God is triune.

Stanza 2 - holiness and glory

The twenty-four elders will fall before Him who sits upon the throne, and they will cast their crowns before the throne (Rev. 4:10); And before the throne there was as it were a glassy sea ... (Rev. 4:6).

As the seraphim, they are for God’s holiness (Isa. 6:3), referring to God’s nature.

As the cherubim, they are for God’s glory (Ezek. 10:18-19; Herb. 9:5), referring to God’s expression.

[Footnotes 1 - Rev. 4:7]

Stanza 3 - Only Thou art holy, there is none beside Thee

Rev. 15:4, Who will not fear, O Lord, and glorify Your name? For You alone are holy; for all the nations will come and worship before You, ...

Isa. 45:5, I am Jehovah and there is no one else; Beside Me there is no God; ...

Am blessed singing this song today, as I felt renewed knowing once again God is perfect in Power, Love and Purity. Jesus is everything the world would regret not having after it has all been said and done. Beloved let's put on our gospel shoes and save the world from this regret. I Love Jesus.

God is surely awesome and holy! Without holiness, no man shall see the Lord. Hebrews 12:14.

This hymn is sung to God in worship, and is taken both from Revelation (where the four and twenty elders cast their crowns before the throne of the Lamb of God, slain before the foundation of the world, AND Isaiah 6 where the 6 angels praised God.

In Isaiah 6 the saved sinner Isaiah was convicted of sin by the holiness of God. He had to hide parts of his body from the effects of the holiness of God, whilst the unfallen Angels need not hide any part of their beings as they are sinless .

The gospel is that The Lord Jesus was slain in our place, bearing our sins on the cross and was resurrected from the dead. If people repent and believe the gospel, they shall be born again, and only then shall they be able to sing this hymn in spirit and in truth (John 4).

One other hymn comes to mind at this point 'eternal light, eternal light how pure the soul must be.


This song is featured in the Andy Griffith movie,”Angel in my pocket”. I watch that movie many times with my daughter. We happened to catch Andy on another rerun and my daughter said,”howy, howy mom!” I said ,”yes! you smarty girl.”
