1 All hail, adored Trinity;
All praise, eternal Unity:
O God the Father, God the Son,
And God the Spirit, ever one.
2 Three Persons praise we evermore,
One only God our hearts adore:
In your sure mercy ever kind,
May we our strong protection find.
3 O Trinity, O Unity,
Be present as we worship thee;
And to the angels' songs in light
Our prayers and praises now unite.
