Behind the Music

We worship a triune God. This means that we worship a God that is absolutely one God yet, at the very same time, three distinct persons. The Trinity has always been a hallmark of Christian doctrine. Even though it is a fundamental doctrine to our faith, it is a very confusing doctrine. The Trinity was a major discussion for the early church fathers and that discussion continues today. For extra fun, just listen to the crazy conversations of eight year olds about the inner workings of trinitarian theology.  

While the doctrine can be confusing, it is comforting as well. We worship a God that is far greater than us and much more complex than we can understand. It wouldn't be comforting to worship a God that we could completely wrap our finite minds around.

On Sunday, we sang a stanza of Holy Holy Holy. It is a hymn that both describes God so well that we can sing with understanding and shows that we will never fully understand God. Take a look at the lyrics below: 

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

Holy holy holy
Though the darkness hide Thee
Though the eye of sinful man
Thy glory may not see
Only Thou art holy
There is none beside Thee
Perfect in power
In love and 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
