O, you are worthy (Hereford – 4 Verses) – Organ


O, You are worthy, our Lord God,
To You creative power belongs;
All glory, Lord, and honour too,
We praise You with our joyful songs.

The Cherubim and Seraphim
With heav’ns angelic throng rejoice;
For all things have been made by You,
All things created by your choice.

Now holy, holy, holy Lord,
Now upward rise the ‘ter nal song;
Thrice holy Lord, to whom our praise
Is giv’n with joy the whole day long.

Worthy are You and only You,
To all our songs and praise receive;
As with our worship we aspire
For You all glory to achieve.
