Is it “Holy, holy, holy (pause) Lord God of Hosts” or “Holy, Holy, Holy Lord (pause) God of Hosts”?

The Sanctus, the prayer that begins the Eucharistic prayer or anaphora, echoes the angelic hymn: “Holy, holy, holy!” It is one of the oldest Eucharistic prayers, with parts of it reaching back to the 1st century Didache: “Hosanna to the God (Son) of David! If any one is holy, let him come; if any one is not so, let him repent. Maran atha. Amen.” It is used universally across the most ancient rites of the Church.
