Songs of the Trinity

We’re getting ready to start a new study in Sunday School on the Trinity, to understand  God as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. There have been many, many hymns written over the years touching on the Trinity by many different authors. These pages will provide the text of some.

One of the most widely sung songs of the Trinity was penned by Thomas Ken in 1697, and is known today as simply the Doxology.

Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;
Praise Him all creatures here below;
Praise Him above, ye heavenly host;
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

Gadsby’s Hymns gives the scriptural background to this hymn as Psalm 117, Psalm 150:6, and Psalm 148:2-4. Can’t say that I would disagree!
