Holy, Holy, Holy

This is by far my favorite version of the classic hymn by one of my favorite artists, Sufjan Stevens. (Not sure who did the video but it’s the only one I can find)

Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
Early in the morning our song shall rise to Thee;
There is a sign at the sight of thee, merciful and mighty!
God in three Persons, God in three Persons, blessed Trinity!

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, 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;
There is a sign at the sight of thee, there is none beside Thee;
God in three Persons, God in three Persons, God in three Persons,
God in three Persons, blessed Trinity!

“Minuit, Chr├ętiens” (Midnight, Christians)

A translation of the original french poem 
"Minuit, Chr├ętiens" by Placide Cappeau, which 
later became the english carol "O Holy Night".  

Midnight, Christians, it is the solemn hour
When God as man descended unto us
To erase the stain of original sin
And to end the wrath of his Father
The entire world thrills with hope
On this night that gives it a Savior

     People kneel down, wait for your deliverance
     Christmas, Christmas, here is the Redeemer
     Christmas, Christmas, here is the Redeemer

May the ardent light of our faith
Guide us all to the cradle of the infant
As in ancient times a brilliant star
Guided the Oriental kings there
The King of kings was born in a humble manger
O mighty ones of today, proud of your greatness

     It is to your pride that God preaches
     Bow your heads before the Redeemer
     Bow your heads before the Redeemer

The Redeemer has broken every bond
The earth is free, and heaven is open
He sees a brother where there was only a slave
Love unites those who iron had chained
Who will tell him of our gratitude
For all of us He is born, He suffers and dies

      People stand up, sing of your deliverance
      Christmas, Christmas, sing of the Redeemer
      Christmas, Christmas, sing of the Redeemer

The End of All Things (A Hymn for the Trinune God)

Our God is the Father, the Spirit, and Son
One God in three Persons; three Persons in One
And the heavenly host adore Him and sing
  For the glory of God is the end of all things

The Father Almighty has shown His great love
With every good gift that has come from above
And the righteous are safe in the shade of His wings
  'Till the world is made new at the end of all things

The Son took on flesh; for our sins He did die
Resurrected to life and ascended on high
The Lord of all lords and the King of all kings
  His power shall reign at the end of all things

The Spirit indwells and new birth is received
Salvation bestowed upon all who've believed
In truth He shall lead them with gifts that He brings
  And the church will arise at the end of all things

The sun, moon, and stars are the work of His hands
And history bends to the will of His plans
The heavens cry out and eternity sings:
  'The glory of God is the end of all things'
