Theme: Trinity Sunday

1.  Sovereign Lord of all creation,
    Ground of being, life and love;
    Height and depth beyond description
    Only life in You can prove:
    You are mortal life's dependence:
    Thought, speech, sight are ours by grace;
    Yours is every hour's existence,
    Sovereign Lord of time and space.

2.  Jesus Christ, the One for others,
    We, Your people, make our prayer:
    Help us love as sisters, brothers, 
    All whose burdens we can share.
    Where Your name binds us together, 
    You, Lord Christ, will surely be;
    Where no selfishness can sever,
    There Your love the world may see.

3.  Holy Spirit, rushing, burning
    Wind and flame of Pentecost,
    Fire our hearts afresh with yearning
    To regain what we have lost.
    May Your love unite our action.
    Nevermore to speak alone:
    God, in us abolish faction,
    God, through us Your love make known.
