The Holy Trinity

I found the prayer to the Holy Trinity in a prayer book. I'm not sure who wrote it, because it didn't say. But I believe it's a powerful prayer, it always makes me feel better and blessed. The Trinity is the greatest mystery of our faith, incomprehensible, but yet as human beings, through love, we can be united to the Trinity. Through baptism and love, we are brought into the divine life of the Trinity. It's an amazing reality, perhaps more amazing than the doctrine of the Trinity, is the fact that our Triune God wants to be in relationship with each one of us. 

God loves each of us as if there were only one of us to love.  St. Augustine
....Our Lord takes a special interest in each soul.   St. Therese of Lisieux

Hymn to the Holy Trinity
Eternal Trinity of love, in peace and majesty you reign;
all things come forth from you alone; to you they must return.
Creation lives and breathes in you, Sustained by your almighty will;
Grant us to know you, God of truth, In whom the questing mind is stilled.
Our Father, in the name of Christ, Unceasingly the Spirit send; 
Be with us everlasting God: Fulfill your purpose to the end.
We praise you, Godhead, One in Three,
Immortal Trinity of light,
Unchanging through eternal days, You live unmoved, serene in might.
