Representative Text

1 Holy Trinity,
thanks and praise to Thee,
that our life and whole salvation
flow from Christ’s blest incarnation
and His death for us
on the shameful cross.

2 Had we angels’ tongues,
with seraphic songs,
bowing hearts and knees before Thee,
Triune God, we would adore Thee
In the highest strain
for the Lamb once slain.
