The Holy Trinity. Isa. 57. 15; 1 Pet. 1. 16

J. Hart         C.M.

1
God is a high and holy God,
 Eternally the same;
 Holiness is his blest abode,
 And holy is his name.

2
The holy Father, Holy Ghost,
 Men readily will own;
 But ’tis a blessing few can boast,
 To know the holy Son.

3
[With hearts of flint, and fronts of brass,
 Some talk of Christ their Head;
 And make the living Lord, alas!
 Companion with the dead.

4
Familiar freedom, luscious names,
 To Christ some fondly use;
 Visions of wonder, flashy frames,
 Are others’ utmost views.

5
By things like these men often run
 To this or that extreme;
 But that man truly knows the Son
 Who loves to live like him.]

6
Lord, help us by thy mighty power
 To gain our constant view;
 Which is, that we may know thee more,
 And more resemble too.
