Franz Schubert

Heilig, heilig, heilig, heilig ist der Herr!
Heilig, heilig, heilig, heilig ist nur Er!

Er, der nie begonnen,
Er, der immer war;
Ewig ist und waltet, sein wird immer dar

Allmacht, Wunder, Liebe, Alles rings umher!
Heilig, Heilig, Heilig ist der Herr.

Holy, holy, holy, holy is the Lord!
Holy, holy, holy, holy is He alone!

He, who had no beginning,
He, who always was;
Eternally is, and reigns and will be evermore

Almighty, wonder, omnipresent love!
Holy, holy, holy, holy is the Lord!

      Edith, I’m so glad you were able to find this post and enjoy listening to this thrice holy declaration of praise! You should know that the recording is done by the Trinity College Choir of Cambridge.

    Having sung this years ago in choir, I find it totally worshipful and soothing.

    Thank you for posting this, it has been going through my mind as well. Sang it recently at an MCC conference and couldn’t find it in any of my hymnbooks. Such a beautiful expression of reverence to God that has stood the test of time.

    My spirit worships and is so moved by this song I remember when I lived in Europe ..I long to find an accompaniment CD, where would I find it? I sing often in church gatherings.
