Bright the Vision that Delighted – Hymn Lyrics

1. mf Bright the vision that delighted
Once the sight of Judah’s seer:
Sweet the countless tongues united
To entrance the prophet’s ear.


2. Round the Lord, in glory seated
Cherubim and seraphim
Filled His temple and repeated
Each to each th’ alternate hymn.


3. f Heaven is still with glory ringing
Earth takes up the angels’ cry
Holy, holy, holy, singing
Lord of hosts, the Lord most high.


4. With seraphim-train before Him,
With the Holy Church below,
Thus unite we to adore Him
Bid we thus our anthem flow.


5. cr Lord, Your glory fills the heaven
Earth is with its fullness stored;
ff Unto You be glory given
Holy, holy, holy Lord. Amen .

 
[Richard Mant]
