Sing a new song–Sanctus et Benedictus

Here are several sung Sanctus/Benedictus texts, set to familiar tunes. Submitted by Carl Wilton.

Aberystwyth (“Jesus, Lover of My Soul”)…

Holy, holy, holy Lord,
God of power and God of might:
heav’n and earth are full, this day,
of your glory come our way.
Blessed is the one who comes
in your name to lead us home
to the place where we may sing
glad hosannas to our king!

Holy, holy, holy Lord,
God of power and God of might:
heav’n and earth are full, this night,
of your glory, beaming bright.
Blessed is the one who comes
in your name to lead us home
to the place where we may sing
glad hosannas to our king!

Love Unknown (#76 “My Song Is Love Unknown”)

Holy, holy, holy, Lord, great God of pow’r and might:
The heavens and the earth are filled with glory bright.
Hosanna is our grateful song
To him who in the Lord’s name comes!

St. Kevin (#115 “Come Ye Faithful, Raise the Strain”)

Holy, holy, holy, Lord, God of pow’r and might,
Heav’n and earth are full this day of your glory bright
Glad hosannas now we raise, raise them in the highest
To the one who in God’s name comes to dwell beside us.
