A Hymn of the Holy Trinity
|Metre: 99 99||Randolph|
God is love and God is mystery:
He is Father, source of all being;
Spirit bringing God’s way of seeing;
God in Jesus bound by history.
God is one and God is Trinity:
In his life we find human meaning,
Jesus Christ through time intervening –
Conquering death by love’s divinity.
God is here and yet beyond our sight:
Father’s love in Jesus, befriending;
Spirit’s joy in life never ending;
Human days are set in endless light.
God brings all into his unity:
Love forgives and heals all our warring,
From the cross God’s lifeblood outpouring –
Asks us into his eternity.
Lift us Lord into your holy light:
Guide our path and bless all our living;
Take our lives in worship’s self–giving –
Raise creation into heaven’s height!
