Wednesday, July Twenty-Eight
Nineteen Hundred Forty-Eight
Ten o'Clock A. M.







Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty!
Early in the morning our songs 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,
Which wert, and art, and evermore shall be.

Holy, holy, holy, tho' the darkness hide thee
Tho' the eye of sinful men thy glory may not see;
Only thou art holy; there's none beside thee,
Perfect in power, in love, and purity;

Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almight!
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!

These files are submitted by volunteers just like you! I make it a habit that anytime I work with records, whether for myself or to share with others, I submit them to the USGenWeb/TXGenWeb project. It doesn't take much extra effort and it really can help many people. I'm very grateful to the many volunteers for all the great info provided.
If you agree, please email, Scott Fitzgerald with your submission.
