Verse: 1
Praise God the Father, the Immortal Creator/
For Your glory you made us, Youíre the Sovereign Orchestrator/
All that You decree will most surely come to happen/
Youíre awesome as can be and Your glory none can fathom/
Nothing could ever stain You, the heavens canít contain You/
We thank You for sending Your Son to explain You/
Otherwise we would have remained in the dark/
But You sent Your Holy Spirit to spark a change in our hearts/
According to Your eternal purpose and will/
You determined to reveal Yourself to those who deserve to be killed/
Those of us whom You foreknew adore You/
We praise You that You predestined us to be conformed to/
The image of Your Son whoís the radiance of Your glory/
When I meditate on it, the weightiness of it floors me/
So Father, weíll praise you over and over again/
Because You sent Your only Son to atone for our sins.

Glory to the Father, Glory to the Son/
Glory to The Spirit- Three and Yet One/
One in Your essence, Three in Your Person/
The same in Your nature, distinct in Your working/
Oh my soul- behold the wonder of the Trinity/
Blessed be the Trinity, Oh, what a mystery/
Iíll stand amazed for the rest of my days/
Pouring out my heart in Triune praise.

Verse 2:
Praise God the Son, Second Person of the Trinity/
Youíre distinct from the Father yet you share in His divinity/
Fulfilling an eternal covenant You came through/
To planet earth to save all who the Father gave You/
You became a man of sorrows, acquainted with grief/
For the glory of Your Father You extinguished the beef/
That stood between us at the cross- the Fatherís anger released/
The Shepherd slain for the sheep, the situation is deep/
I canít find the right language to speak, in fact itís making me weep/
Just the thought of You saving this creep/
Youíre risen from the dead, I still canít get this in my head/
How the Judge could leave the bench and go to prison instead/
Lord Jesus, youíre amazing, Your bleeding is what saved men/
Itís the reason why Iím praising, canít wait to see Your face/
In the meantime, please help us to see You as colossal/
And by the Spirit live lives thatís worthy of the gospel.

Verse 3:
Praise God the Holy Spirit, 3rd person of the Trinity/
Distinct from Father and Son, yet share in Their divinity/
Holy Spirit we praise You, You donít like the spotlight/
Youíd rather point away from yourself and give props to Christ/
And yet because Youíre God, You deserve veneration/
And Youíre the One responsible for our regeneration/
You apply the finished work of Christ to all the elect/
Your call is effectual- You havenít lost one yet/
You comfort us when sin, Satan and the world got us bothered/
And itís only by You that we cry out ďAbba FatherĒ/
Youíre the Spirit of adoption, the Spirit of Truth/
You graciously provide Your people with the gifts and the fruit/
You help us kill sin and You detach us from our idols/
If it wasnít for You, weíd never understand the Bible/
Because You wrote it- For our life it will surely suffice/
Amazingly, You do it all for the glory of Christ!
