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.

In the Jewish language to repeat a word is for emphasis. To repeat twice is like an explanation point. To repeat three times is like standing up and shouting. Holy, holy, holy, merciful and mighty. There is none like you! You are perfect in power, in love, in purity!

Yesterday I read the Revelation chapter four.

In verse 8, it says "And the four living creatures, ... they have no rest day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God the Almighty, who was and who is and who is coming."

And in verse 10-11, it says, "The tewenty-four elders... saying, You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive the glory and the honor and the power, for You have created all things, and because of You will they were, and ere created.

These verses remind me that our Lord God enjoys our praising! We shall praise Him like the four living creatures and the twenty- four elders everyday.

Praise the Lord.

When I was young, we went to a church that had a choir and a junior choir in the small town of 3000 people. The junior choir marsh down the aisle first and then the senior choir while the organist played holy holy holy Lord God, Almighty. So of all the hymns I sung in my lifetime, I remember holy holy, holy the most!!

I grew up in a small town in a Methodist Church, I changed to an “open Bible” When I was 20.

I enjoyed this hymn this morning I hope you do also. All those who will be crowned, that is faithful to the end, in the coming age, will cast their crowns down as they see Christ. They willl realize they are nothing without Him. He is God Almighty. In that day the earth will sway. We should have a healthy fear today. “Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling” I think we can understand that when we really touch the Father. It is good to know who we are dealing with in our Christian life.

On a trip to Bangladesh in the 1970s, I remember visiting a church, dedicated to Reginald Heber, the author of the hymn, “Holy, holy, holy“. I thought, “that great hymn-writer was a missionary in this far-off corner of Asia!“ Heber was born in Cheshire England in 1783. Soon after completing his education, Reginald was ordained in the Anglican Church, and served in a small church in the village of Hodnet. Reginald developed a reputation for being a devoted follower of God, and a wonderful poet, which was the perfect recipe for an enduring hymn. in 1823, Reginald was called to serve in India. He became the Bishop of Calcutta, which made him leader over missions in India, Ceylon, and Autralia. During his time in India, Reginald worked tirelessly to build a training school for local clergy so the area would have ministers for the long term . He also traveled across India, spreading the gospel. Over the years, the climate and his heavy responsibilities wore on his health. One Sunday, after an outdoor sermon to a large gathering, Reginald dropped dead from heat stroke. Over the years he had written a number of hymns, which he never saw publication for. But his wife saw the beauty in her husband’s work, and she put a collection of hymns together and had them published. Fifty-seven hymns were included, one of which stood out far above the others. “Holy holy, holy, Lord God, Almighty,” which Alfred Lord Tennyson, the renowned English author, considered to be the greatest hymn ever written! I recall my dad, loving it as well. Heber’s hymns have been a blessing to many for over 200 years.
