Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord (Holy is the Lord God Almighty)

This is a praise-chorus style hymn, based on Revelation 4:8 .   

It has been in use since the 1970s at least, and possibly earlier:  A version with the tune only slightly different to the one here was included in Songs of Praise from Scripture in Song - 1973.

The author and composer are unknown:  If you have any information about it, please leave a message in the Comments box near the bottom of the page.

Because the words mention Christ's death, resurrection and coming-again, the first verse is sometimes used as the Sanctus in liturgical services, although the lyrics are a little different from many of the standard translations.  It can also be used as a general praise hymn, with extra verses ("mighty", "worthy" added as necessary.

There are a number of variations of the tune in use around the world - both the melody line, and the accompaniment.
