Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty

“Holy, Holy, Holy” is a Christian hymn written by Reginald Heber in 1826. The hymn is based on Isaiah 6:1-3 and Revelation 4:8, which describe the worship of God by angels in heaven. The hymn is often sung to the tune “Nicaea,” which was composed by John B. Dykes in 1861. The video location is along the northern shore of Lake Erie near Kingsville ON.


” 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, blessèd Trinity!”

The Song of Zechariah

Played on the Guitar. Originally from – An Wasserflüssen Babylon Strasbourg, 1525


With reference to Luke 1: 68-79.

“Blest be the God of Israel,
for he has come to set us free;
in David’s house the Lord has raised
salvation’s horn for all to see.
He through his prophets long ago
said he would save us from our foe,
from all who scorn and hate us.
He has not put our fathers’ faith to shame
but, in his love remembering them,
has kept the oath he swore to Abraham.”.

A New Father’s Song

“Hallelujah! Praised Be the Son,” played on the Guitar. Originally from – Evangelische Gezangen, 1806 


” Hallelujah! Praised be the Son,
for his redeeming work is done;
from sin he has untied us.
He died, was buried, but he lives,
and to his ransomed people gives
his blessed Word to guide us.

Hallelujah! The praises tell
of David’s Son, Emmanuel,
the Saviour, God incarnate.
In him, who will return again,
let all the universe acclaim
the Father, Son, and Spirit.”
