     1 In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. 2 Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly. 3 And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory. 4 And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke.

     5 Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts. 6 Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar: 7 And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged. 8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.(KJV)

1. Isaiah, mighty seer, in days of old 
The Lord of all in Spirit did behold 
High on a lofty throne, in splendor bright, 
With flowing train that filled the Temple quite. 
Above the throne were stately seraphim, 
Six wings had they, these messengers of Him. 
With twain they veiled their faces, as was meet, 
With twain in reverent awe they hid their feet, 
And with the other twain aloft they soared, 
One to the other called and praised the Lord: 
“Holy is God, the Lord of Sabaoth! 
Holy is God, the Lord of Sabaoth! 
Holy is God, the Lord of Sabaoth! 
Behold, His glory filleth all the earth!” 
The beams and lintels trembled at the cry, 
And clouds of smoke enwrapped the throne on high.
