1 To comprehend the Three in One
Is more than highest angels can;
Or what the Trinity has done
From death and hell to ransom man.
2 But all believers this may boast
(A truth from nature never learn'd)
That Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
To save our souls are all concern'd.
3 The Father's love in this we find;
He made his Son our sacrifice.
The Son in love his life resign'd.
The Holy Ghost this blood applies.
4 Thus we the Trinity can praise
One only God, thro' Christ our King;
Our grateful hearts and voices raise
In faith and love; while thus we sing;
5 Glory to God the Father be;
Because he sent his Son to die.
Glory to God the Son; that he
Did with such willingness comply.
6 Glory to God the Holy Ghost,
Who to our hearts this love reveals.
Thus God three-one to sinners lost
Salvation sends, procures, and seals.
