THREE IN ONE, ONE IN THREE, GOD OF MY SAVATION
Heavenly Father, blessed Son, eternal Spirit
I adore you as one Being, one Essence,
one God in three distinct Persons,
for bringing sinners to your knowledge and to your kingdom.
O Father, you have loved me and sent Jesus to redeem me;
O Jesus, you have loved me and assumed my nature,
shed your own blood to wash away my sins,
wrought righteousness to cover my unworthiness;
O Holy Spirit, you have loved me and entered my heart,
implanted there eternal life,
revealed to me the glories of Jesus.
Three Persons and one God, I bless and praise you,
for love so unmerited, so unspeakable, so wondrous,
so mighty to save the lost and raise them to glory.
O Father, I thank you that in fullness of grace
you have given me to Jesus,
to be his sheep, jewel, portion;
O Jesus, I thank you that in fullness of grace
you have accepted, espoused, bound me;
O Holy Spirit, I thank you that in fullness of grace
you have exhibited Jesus as my salvation,
implanted faith within me,
subdued my stubborn heart,
made me one with him for ever.
O Father, you are enthroned to hear my prayers,
O Jesus, your hand is outstretched to take my petitions,
O Holy Spirit, you are willing to help my infirmities,
to show me my need, to supply words, to pray within me,
to strengthen me that I faint not in supplication.
O Triune God, who commanded the universe,
you have commanded me to ask for those things
that concern your kingdom and my soul.
Let me live and pray as one baptized in the threefold Name.
