Let all mortal flesh keep silence,
And with fear and trembling stand;
Ponder nothing earthly minded,
For with blessing in His hand,
Christ our God to earth descendeth,
Our full homage to demand.

King of kings, yet born of Mary,
As of old on earth He stood,
Lord of lords, in human vesture,
In the body and the blood;
He will give to all the faithful
His own self for heavenly food.

Rank on rank the host of heaven
Spreads its vanguard on the way,
As the Light of light descendeth
From the realms of endless day,
That the powers of hell may vanish
As the darkness clears away.

At His feet the six wing├Ęd seraph,
Kadosh, Kadosh
Cherubim with sleepless eye,
Kadosh, YHVH Adonai
Veil their faces to the presence,
Kadosh, Kadosh
As with ceaseless voice they cry:
Kadosh, YHVH Adonai
Alleluia, Alleluia
Alleluia, Lord Most High!

Lovely melody...
Nice choice Thomas...There are many ancient and medieval examples of fine spiritual poetry crying out to be contemporized. Good job my friend.

Be well!

Salutations, while I've nothing particular against secular lyrics per se, I often find they're accompanied by a hackneyed sentimentality and impenetrable lyric - this is no exception( pour moi). Some of my fave tunes like The Old Rugged Cross and Just A Closer Walk With Thee have wonderful lyrics and uplifting melodies, maybe a more basic and traditional approach would freshen up your take on this genre. Be lucky.
