This hymn is a loose translation of the Te Deum, via an anonymous German translation often attributed to Ignaz Franz. The tune is known by many names, including Framingham, Grossner, Grosser Gott, Halle, Hungarian Melody, Laudamus, Paris, Paschal, and Stillorgan. In German, it appears in both Protestant and Catholic hymnals to the text Großer Gott wir loben dich [Great God, we praise thee].

1.Holy God we praise thy name,
Lord of all we bow before thee;
All on earth thy scepter claim,
All in heaven above adore thee,
Infinite thy vast domain,
Ever lasting is thy regin.
2.Hark! the loud celestial Hymn,
Angel choirs above are raising;
Cherubim and seraphim
In unceasing chorus praising,
Fill the heavens with sweet accord;
Holy, holy, holy, Lord!
3.Holy Father, Holy Son,
Holy Spirt, Three we name thee,
While in essence only One,
Undivided God we claim thee;
And adoring bend the kneee,
While we own the mystery.
4.Thou art King of glory, Christ!
Son of God yet born of Mary,
For use sinner sacrificed,
And to death a tributary;
First to break the bars of death,
Thou hast opened heaven to faith.
