Blessed Trinity!

Once again, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I'm letting you know I'm happy it's SONday.  Our Lord's Day.

For sure, I'll be heading to our church building, to worship with my church family.  And, attend Bible study class, as well.

Recently, I realized that I had not posted here on LwL a hymn that I absolutely adore.

It is by Reginald Heber and John B. Dykes.  It's entitled, Holy, Holy, Holy! Lord God Almighty.  Here is a link for you to listen and/or sing along:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rBGTPh2Xn_o.  The lyrics are below.

Holy, Holy, Holy! Lord God Almighty

Holy, holy, holy!  Lord God Almighty!
Early in the morning
Our song shall rise to Thee.
Holy, holy, holy!
Merciful and mighty!
God in three Persons, blessed Trinity!

Holy, holy, holy!
All the saints adore Thee,
Casting down their golden crowns
Around the glassy sea.
Cherubim and seraphim
Falling down before Thee,
Which wert, and art, and evermore shalt be.

(This verse was not recorded)
Holy, holy, holy!
Though the darkness hide Thee,
Though the eye of sinful man
Thy glory may not see.
Only thou are holy--
There is non beside Thee,
Perfect in power, in love, in purity.

Holy, holy, holy!
Lord God Almighty!
All Thy works shall praise Thy name
In earth, and sky, and sea.
Holy, holy, holy!
Merciful and mighty!
God in three Persons, blessed Trinity!

This hymn reflects what the Bible tells us.  In several ways.

First of all, God IS holy.  God is in three (3) persons:  Father, Son and Holy Spirit. 

While we use that terminology today, in the past, God has been known by various terms.

Just as we read, in 1 John 5:7-8, "For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.
And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one."

How grateful I am for God.  For having Him in my life.

And, being part of His family. 

For this, I will always praise Him!


Until next time...
