1. All hail, adored Trinity!
all hail, eternal Unity!
O God the Father, God the Son,
and God the Spirit, ever One.
2. To thee upon this holy day,
we offer up our thankful lay;
thou hearest in thy love's great wealth,
and praising thee is all our health.
3. Three Persons praise we evermore,
our only God our hearts adore;
in thy sweet mercy ever kind
may we our sure protection find.
4. O Trinity! O Unity!
Be present as we worship thee;
and with the songs that angels sing
unite the hymns of praise we bring.
To hear the music (without words), go to All hail, adored Trinity.
