Praise and Glory to the Trinity

Praise and glory be to the omnipotence of the eternal Father, who in his Providence created the world out of nothing.

Praise and glory be to the wisdom of his only-begotten Son, who redeemed the world with his blood.

Praise and glory be to the loving kindness of the Holy Spirit, who enlightened the world in faith.

Praise and glory be to the holy and undivided Trinity, who formed us without our deserving it in their image.

We give praise and glory to you, most blessed Trinity, for the blessing of our creation, by which you granted us bodies and souls, you adorned us with your image and likeness, and added us to your Christian flock, making us sound and whole in our sense and in our members, above all the creatures who are beneath the heavens, and gave us your holy angels as our guides and ministers.  For all this be pleased that we may praise you, world without end.
