The Glorious Trinity

Another poem from Michael Abbott's book "Echoes of Eternity"; used with permission -

The Glorious Trinity

Divine, Immortal, Triune God,
Three persons yet the same,
We praise Thee for the mystery
And glory of Thy name.

Great Father, God, Thy Word decreed
This world into its place,
And there in Eden's purity
Brought forth the human race.
When Adam into sin declined,
Thy purpose was revealed:
Salvation's plan for fallen man
Was by Thy promise sealed.

Eternal Son, by love sent forth,
An offering for our sin;
To satisfy the Law's demands,
That grace might enter in.
No tongue can tell the debt we owe
To Thee our Saviour God,
Who for His people freely shed
His pure and precious blood.

Oh Holy Spirit, Comforter,
Unseen yet ever near,
Who draws us by the Father's love
And takes away our fear;
Convince this world of sin we pray
And glorify the Son,
That many precious souls today
Might to His cause be won.

Divine, Immortal, Triune God,
Three persons yet the same,
We praise Thee for the mystery
And glory of Thy name.
