Today we celebrate the Feast of the Most Holy Trinity.
All hail, adored Trinity!
all hail, eternal Unity!
O God the Father, God the Son,
and God the Spirit; Three-In-One.
To thee upon this festal day,
we offer up our thankful lay;
thou hearest in thy love's great wealth,
and praising thee is all our health.
Three Persons praise we evermore,
our only God our hearts adore;
in thy sweet mercy ever kind
may we our sure protection find.
O Trinity! O Unity!
Be present as we worship thee;
and with the songs that angels sing
unite the hymns of praise we bring.
Words: Anglo-Saxon, before the eleventh century
