Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come. blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and night, be unto our God, for ever and ever. Tuou art righteous, O Lord, which art, and wast, and that shalt be ; true and righteous are thy judgments. Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty ; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints. Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art holy : for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest. Praise our God, all
ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small and great. Alleluia : for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth. Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him, and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters. Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created. Alleluia ; salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God: salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.

Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, and hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father: to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen. Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye
shall him, and they also which pierced him: and all
kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen. And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, shall give blessing, and honour, and glory, and power unto him that sitteth
the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.
