On this date, April 3, 1826, Reginald Heber died in India. Two of his more well-known songs were published after his death including Holy, Holy, Holy and From Greenland’s Icy Mountains. Holy, Holy, Holy makes my heart worship every time I sing it!

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 thee,

who wert and art and evermore shalt be.

Holy, Holy, Holy!
