Hi,

The church hymnal is not the whole source for Kurt Carr's rendition. Here are the words according to his recording of Holy, holy, holy.

Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty
Early in the morning our song shall rise to thee
Holy, holy, holy, merciful and mighty
God in three persons, blessed Trinity

Holy, holy, holy, All the saints adore thee
Casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea
Cherubim and seraphim falling down before him
Which wert, and art, and evermore shalt be

Ah, ah, ahhhhhh, ah, ah - ah - ah, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty

Holy, holy, holy, though the darkness hide thee
Though the eye of sinful man thy glory may not see
Only thou art holy, there is none beside thee
You are perfect in pow'are, in love, and purity

Ah, ah, ah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God almighty God in three persons, blessed trinityyyyyyyy.

Lord, we give you the honor, and Lord, oh Lord, oh Lord, we give you the praise, you raise me up in the time of trouble - and I lift you up when I praise your name. They nailed his hands, and he hung his head and died, buton that third day - hallelujah, he got up from the grave.

Words: Reginald Heber 1820
Music: John Bacchus Dykes 1861
