The Dance of Trinity

Come, join the dance of Trinity, before all worlds begun,
we sing the praises of The Three, The Father, Spirit, Son!
The universe of space and time did not arise by chance, but as the Three,
in love and hope, made room within their dance.
Come, see the face of Trinity, newborn in Bethlehem;
then bloodied by a crown of thorns outside Jerusalem.
The dance of Trinity is meant for human flesh and bone;
when fear confines the dance in death, God rolls away the stone.
Come, speak aloud of Trinity, as wind and tongues of flame set the people free at Pentecost to tell the Savior's name.
We know the yoke of sin and death, our necks have worn it smooth;
go tell the world of weight and woe that we are free to move!
Within the dance of Trinity, before all worlds begun,
we sing the praises of the Three, the Father, Spirit, Son.

 Let voices rise and interweave, by love and hope set free,
go shape in song this joy, this life: the dance of Trinity!

[Richard Leach]

1 John 5:7 ... For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.

Matthew 28:19 ... Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

John 17:20-21 ... Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;  That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
