Praise to the Holiest in the Height

Hymn from The Dream of Gerontius by Cardinal Newman (1865) from The Adoremus Hymnal

What better way to express the joy of this moment than by turning to our heavenly Father in heartfelt thanksgiving,
praying in the words that Blessed John Henry Newman placed on the lips of the choirs of angels in heaven:

Praise to the Holiest in the height
And in the depth be praise;
In all His words most wonderful,
Most sure in all His ways!

— Pope Benedict XVI
Homily, Mass for the Beatification of Blessed John Henry Newman
