English.png English text

Great God who reigns on high,
to whom the cherubim sing,
Almighty King,
Sing they "Holy, holy, holy".
Now the heav’nly host in triumph
Laud and praise the Holy Trinity
"Great God we worship Thee".
Praise from the cherubim,
Praise from the seraphim,
To Father, Son and Holy Ghost.

Cherubim and seraphim fall down before Thee,
Prostrate fall before Thee,
Which wert and art and evermore shall be.
