Without the Trinity
Without the Father, creation would be empty space.
Without the Son, no sacrifice to set us free.
Without the Spirit, no inspiration to embrace.
We would be nothing without the Trinity.
Were there no Father, no Son to cure this mortal land.
Were there no Son, no Spirit breathed on you and me.
Were there no Spirit, we could not feel the Father’s hand.
We would be lost without the Trinity.
Praise to the Father, for gifts beyond our right to ask.
Praise to the Son, for love we are too blind to see.
Praise to the Spirit, for showing us a heavenly task.
We find our world, our, love, our fire in the Trinity.
