Scenes from a Summer's Day, 7

Scenes from a Summer's Day

Now it's my turn, and this appears to be a fitting end to this day;

It is truly meet and just, right and profitable for us, at all times, and in all places, to give thanks to Thee, O holy Lord, Father almighty, eternal god, through Christ our Lord. Through Whom the angels praise, the dominations adore the powers, trembling with awe, worship Thy majesty: which the heavens and the forces of heaven, together with the blessed seraphim, joyfully do magnify. And do Thou command that it be permitted to our lowliness to join with them in confessing Thee and unceasingly to repeat:

Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God of hosts.

The heavens and the earth
are full of Thy glory

(Pleni sunt coeli, et terra gloria tua)

Hosanna in the highest.

Blessed is He that cometh in the name of the Lord.

Hosanna in the higest.
