Holy Holy Holy
by Susan B Mead on September 12th, 2015

​Have you ever had a refrain stuck in your memory, swirling around in a continual loop?  Yea, me too.  Lately, it’s been the old hymn Holy, Holy, Holy.  At least it’s a beautiful worship song that sets the right atmosphere for praise, right?

Some days, if I am hearing those words, it really feels like Holey, Holey, Holey am I…then I recall it is not about me.  It’s about the Lord God Almighty.  Yes, the One who covers you and me with His grace.  He redefines us as He restores us to Himself.  He removes that extra silent e from holey, transforming you and me so we can come before our Great God to be wholly reverent in His Holy presence.  He is not silent.  His entire creation sings His beauty and majesty to us.  

So join me as we unite with His creation singing…
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 was, and is, and evermore shall be.

Holy, holy, holy! though the darkness hide Thee,
Though the eye of sinful man Thy glory may not see;
Only Thou art holy; there is none beside Thee,
Perfect in power, in love, and purity.

Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
All Thy works shall praise Thy Name, in earth, and sky, and sea;
Holy, holy, holy; merciful and mighty!
God in three Persons, blessed Trinity!

May you continue to worship Him, singing Holy, Holy, Holy...
​Today's blog post is part of our series SundayHymnBook, where I have invited others to visit on Sundays and share about how a particular hymn or worship song has impacted their life.

 How has this song impacted your worship experience? I would love to hear from you in the comments below.

 Do you have a hymn or worship song which holds special meaning to you? Would you like to share your story with others? You don't have to be a writer or blogger to join us in this series, just love God and love His music! So if you would like to share your story one Sunday, just drop me a line at jana@SweetToTheSoul.com.

Susan B. Mead is the author of the book, “Dance with Jesus: From Grief to Grace.” 
 In 2004, Susan lost her younger sister to suicide…
 In 2008, she lost her college-aged son to drugs and alcohol, and
 In 2013, Susan was in the grandstands cheering on her cousin as he ran the 45th anniversary of winning the Boston Marathon, only to see the first bomb explode directly across the street…
 Having experienced her share of grief, Susan learned God shines the brightest light in the darkest moments and shows up when we need Him most. 
 Susan wants to share her journey to inspire, motivate and empower you…
 You too can find grace in the midst of grief and calm in the chaos of life.
