LYRICS

Three distinct Persons
One unique God
You
All power is Yours
Creating, designing, sustaining 
us
We look at us
Seeing traces of You
we question
How? When? For how long? 
Why are we here?
You—there
yet dwelling in fullness
in those who take
Your Son
by Your Spirit
The faithful
live, breathe, move, be
As unreal as it may seem
so real it is
We—all understanding perfection 
not fully experiencing it
but people
thinking
loving
choosing
(right and wrong)—
get the picture that
perfect? we are not
Yet we
in mind’s eye
see faint image
though darkened
of Perfect Maker
That we can conceive
You
as perfect
means
You
must
be


Look at earth
Both beauty and pain
live here
The beauty pure:
trees, flowers,
sunsets, crashing waves,
mountains snow-capped, deep calls 
to deep
children’s laughter
reflect You as creative, joyful
8th day forward still active and 
interacting with what You made 
The pain: piercing, bruising, bitter 
in sweet moments
(Scorned Son understands) 
leaves opportunity
for compassion to shine
in every dark corner
the sending God goes forth 
stooping to lift heads


We
turning Pages of Life 
see 
Yahweh—self-existent 
Elohim—powerful 
Adonai—Lord
as He in Trinity Redeems
Shepherds
Shields
The Just Justifier
of His very own people


In darkness
Light comes to world
in the flesh
and, not understanding,
World gives Light the boot 
choosing darkness
loving evil
hating purity and life
Yet darkness cannot win the fight 
Resurrection: proof


This Light is S-O-N 
showing Father 
Just like Him
fully divine
And fully human
One Person
Source and Sovereign over creation 
The full picture of self-giving
To the point of death on a cross 
Wrath taken out on Him for sinful 
people
Yet esteemed highly
and exalted highly
by the redeemed of all time
By Father
And...


Spirit
Above the waters hovering 
Breathing life into man
Called Oil, Anointing, Breath of the 
Almighty, Gift
Holy Spirit
creating and renewing
Presence and Lamp
Spirit of:
Wisdom and Understanding 
Counsel and Power 
Knowledge and Fear 
Stream in desert lands 
Giving rest to earth’s weary 
sojourners
Glorifying those who choose the 
Son
Spirit of holiness
Baptizing me
Changing me
to be
all I can and should be 
Spirit of glory


Father
Oh Abba
Daughters like me see world-bound 
fathers
struggle to love
not loving Your example 
Heaven-bound fathers
struggle to love
in Your example
Revealed by the S-O-N
The Imperceivable
Unchangeable
Unattainable
Immortal
Invisible
shows Himself
blinding us with gleaming glory 
burning fire not consumed
yet inviting us to partake
and be brilliant, too


Intrinsic in
You
harmony in Father, Son, Spirit 
eternally relating
eternally loving
mutually indwelling
fully sharing 
giving 
loving 
supporting
One for All 
and
All for One
