You’re my Maker

1. Father,
You’re my Maker,
My Lord, my fire, my light;
I worship you with all my strength,
And glory in your might.

2. Mary,
You’re my Mother,
My peace in heaven above;
I honour you with all my mind,
And revel in your love.

3. Jesus,
You’re my Saviour,
My life, my truth, my way;
I sing your praise with all my heart,
And thank you every day.

4. Spirit,
You’re my Teacher,
My Comforter and Friend;
I welcome you with all my soul,
And trust you to the end.
