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.
