1. Father,
The divinity of God:
You form us,
Then you give us life and breath.

2. Jesus,
The humanity of God:
You came to earth
To set us free from death.

3. Spirit,
The veracity of God:
You come to bring us power
From above.

4. Three-In-One,
The unity of God:
You long for us
To join your dance of love.

The mystery of God

There is one Lord, one faith, one baptism, and one God and Father,
who is over all and in all and living through all.
(Ephesians 4:6; NLT).

1. One strength, one heart,
One soul, one mind;
One Father, who makes
Humankind.

2. One way, one truth,
One life for all;
One Son, who saves us
When we fall.

3. One peace, one faith,
One hope, one love;
One Spirit, sent
From heaven above.

4. One Lord, one God,
One Trinity;
One flesh, one blood,
One mystery.
