The Mystery of the Trinity reveal’d in Christ.
The Glories of Jehovah shine
In his own son, who is Divine;
Well he could tell the Father’s Name, .
Because his Nature is the same.
The Father, Son, and Spirit be
One God most High, yet One in Three;
The Godhead’s Glory jointly share,
Because that they Co-equal are[.]
This is a Mystery too bright,
To be beheld by Nature’s Light;
From men of Reason ’tis conceal’d, .
Though in the Gospel it’s reveal’d.
They set their Reason up to pry,
Into this sacred Mystery;
But it, alas! Is blinded quite
By looking on this dazzling Light.
It’s not an Organ fit to see,
The Glory of this Mystery;
Jehovah this to Babes reveals,
And from the Prudent it conceals.
Th’ Eye that sees ’tis Gospel-Faith,
Discerning what the Scripture saith;
It’s a bless’d Thing to be a Babe,
Taught by the Spirit to cry Abb’.
O guide us, least we go astray,
And lead us still in Christ the Way;
Then shall we to thy bosom run,
And see thee in thine only Son.
Where thou reveal’st thy glorious Face,
And all thy wond’rous Acts of Grace;
Here we shall live, and thee adore,
When Sin and Time shall be no more.
