Trinitarian Doxology

downloadPraise to you,
O God the Father,
for you created all things
by your power and wisdom,
and so loved the world
that you gave your Son
to be our Savior.

Praise to you,
O God the Son,
for you were made fully human,
like us in every respect
except without sin,
and you were delivered up for our trespasses
and raised again for our justification.

Praise to you,
O God the Holy Spirit,
for you guide us into all truth,
and pour God’s love into our hearts.

All praise and glory to you, O God,
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
for ever and ever.
Amen.
