The Doctrine of the Trinity, and the Use of It

“For through Him we both have our access in one Spirit to the Father,” Ephesians 2:18

Father of glory, to thy name
Immortal praise we give,
Who dost thy work of grace proclaim,
And bid us, rebels live.

Immortal honor to the Son,
Who makes thine anger cease;
Our lives he ransomed with his own,
And died to make our peace.

To thy Almighty Spirit be
Immortal glory given;
Whose influence brings us near to thee,
And trains us up for Heaven.

Let men, with their united voice,
Adore th’ eternal God;
And spread his honors and their joys,
Through nations far abroad.

Let faith, and love, and duty join,
One general song to raise;
And saints in earth and Heaven combine
In harmony and praise.

–Isaac Watts (1674-1748)
