Trinity Sunday

Almighty and everlasting God, you have given to us your servants grace, by the confession of a true faith, to acknowledge the glory of the eternal Trinity, and in the power of your divine Majesty to worship the Unity: Keep us steadfast in this faith and worship, and bring us at last to see you in your one and eternal glory, O Father; who with the Son and the Holy Spirit live and reign, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Glory to you, Lord God of our fathers; you are worthy of praise; glory to you.

Glory to you for the radiance of your holy Name; we will praise you and highly exalt you for ever.

Glory to you in the splendor of your temple; on the throne of your majesty, glory to you.

Glory to you, seated between the Cherubim; we will praise you and highly exalt you for ever.

Glory to you, beholding the depths; in the high vault of heaven, glory to you.

Glory to you, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; we will praise you and highly exalt you for ever.

One thought on “Trinity Sunday

  1. Andrew T.

    The first line is very poetic. I particularly appreciate the resonance between “..to acknowledge the glory of the eternal Trinity” and “.. in the power of your divine Majesty to worship the Unity:

    Then there is the frequent reference to ‘Glory’. To God be all honour, and Glory, certainly, but somehow I don’t think we yet fully grasp the fullness of His Glory (and I suspect we know it).

    We rightfully say “Glory to you ..” but it is just a word. I long for the day ‘glory’ will be an experience. It’s just like talking about the awe of the presence of God; blessed is he for whom it is more than a phrase and a concept!
