Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence

This is by far one of my favorite hymns ever.  It is an amazing song for Eucharistic Adoration. I hope you all enjoy it!  This is a cover I did some time ago. I love this Hymn because it seems to draw me into reflection of Heavens Glory and of Christs majesty.  It reminds us of His sacrifice for us and of His power over death and sin.

Click here for a bit of history about where this song came from!

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 winged seraph,
Cherubim with sleepless eye,
Veil their faces to the presence,
As with ceaseless voice they cry:
Alleluia, Alleluia
Alleluia, Lord Most High!

  1. I’ve only heard this hymn about five times in my whole life, but it’s one of my favorites too. Thanks for posting.
