1  Where the angel hosts adore Thee,
Thou, O God, in heav’n dost reign;
At Thy word they rose around Thee,
And Thy word doth them sustain.

2  Thousand times ten thousand, bending
At Thy throne, their homage pay;
Flames of fire in strength excelling,
Swift Thy pleasure to obey.

3  Fashioned in a wondrous order,
Thee they serve, their Lord and King;
Grant that in our cares and dangers
They may timely succour bring.

4  Praise to Thee Who hast created
Earth and heaven with all their host;
Praise to Thee, O God most mighty,
Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
