So full of mercy and of love,
Jesus, Redeemer, forever worshipped
Life-giving Spirit, Our Comforter most gracious,
God-everlasting, we give You praise

Holy God, You are most glorious, so glorious
Three in one, forever I stand in awe, In awe of you

O blessed Trinity, in unity unbroken
One perfect Godhead, be now exalted
But what a mystery, by Your grace
You have drawn us in
Sinful humanity, shares in the glory

Help us to rightly honor You,
The God of all creation
Though we don't fully understand
Your intricate formation
Open our eyes to know you more
Delight our hearts with wonder
The God of all, mysterious one,
how we adore You
