Contemporary Hymn for Trinity Sunday


Here’s a contemporary hymn to the Trinity.  It was translated from the Latin by Michael Saward, and posted on Jubilate Hymns.

All Hail, Majestic Trinity!

All hail, majestic Trinity!
All hail, eternal unity!
O God the Father, God the Son,
and God the Spirit, ever one.

One living God, our hearts adore;
three Persons, now and evermore;
and in your loving mercy kind
salvation's promised hope we find.

O Trinity, O Unity,
our God, both now and ever be;
and with the songs that angels sing
we shall rejoice, all-glorious king.
