Lord, grant grace, we humbly beseech thee,
that we, with thy Angels and Saints,
may sing to thee continually
Holy, holy, holy, Lord God of hosts.

Glory, honour and power be unto thee,
O God the Creator, O Lord Jesu the Redeemer,
O Holy Spirit the Conforter.

And let everything that has breath,
praise and magnify the same Lord almighty.
