[Verse 1]
Ah could I sing as I dream’d I sang
Last night as I fell asleep
When hush’d the world in silence lay
Silence profound and deep
For then my voice had found the tone
For which so long I’d striven
I dream’d I sang as the angels sing
Around the throne of heav’,
I dream’d I sang I sang as the angles sing
I dream’d I sang as the angels as the angels
“Sanctus Sanctus Sanctus Sanctus
Dominus Deus Sabaoth”
O blissful moment sweet the remembrance
Of Joy celestial that fill’d my breast
Sanctus Sanctus
Theme ever blest
Sounding in praise of the Hightest

[Verse 2]
Beneath a temple’s vaulted roof I mus’d the while alone
The organ answer’d to my touch
Breathing its sweetest tone
My soul seem’d thrill’d by a living flame
From off the altar given
I dream’d I sang as the angels sing
Around the throne of heav’n
I dream’d I sang I sang as the angels sing
I dream’d I sang as the angels as the angels
Holy holy holy holy
Holy God of Hosts
Tho’ but an echo precious and holy
This theme the noblest to Heav’n addressed
Holy holy
Noblest and best
Sounding in praise of the Holiest
