Representative Text

1. Mighty Father, blessèd Son,
Holy Spirit, Three in One,
Ever more Thy will be done.
Threefold is Thy glorious might,
Threefold is Thy name of light,
Veiled before our mortal sight.
Threefold let our praises be,
Great mysterious One, to Thee,
Undivided Trinity.

2. Into mystery deeper, higher,
Thou dost awfully retire,
Lowliest reverence to inspire;
That within the golden door,
Sense and sight must wait before,
Faith may enter and adore:
Mystery—’tis all around;
Mystery—but holy ground;
Where Thy mercy may be found.

3. O my God, mine all Thou art:
Take my whole in every part,
Body, spirit, mind and heart,
Threefold is Thy love to me;
Threefold let my graces be,
Faith and hope and charity.
Thus shall best Thy will be done,
Mighty Father, blessèd Son,
Holy Spirit, Three in One.
