O Most Holy Trinity, Undivided Unity

God Father, Praise and Glory is a 1936 translation by Fr. John Rothensteiner (1860-1936) of the German hymn: Gott Vater! Sei Gepriesen. It is sometimes referred to as O Most Holy Trinity. The original author is unknown. The tune is from the German hymnal, Mainz Gesangbuch (1833). In the Liturgy of the Hours, God Father, Praise and Glory is used during Ordinary Time for Morning and Mid-Afternoon Prayer.



GOD FATHER, PRAISE AND GLORY translated by John Rothensteiner, 1936 (Public Domain) 

1. God Father, praise and glory
Your children come to sing.
Goodwill and peace to mankind.
The gifts your kingdom brings.

Refrain:
O most Holy Trinity.
Undivided Unity;
Holy God, Mighty God.
God Immortal, be adored.

2. And you, Lord Coeternal,
God's sole begotten Son;
O Jesus. King anointed.
You have redemption won.

3. O Holy Ghost, Creator
The Gift of God most high;
Life, love and holy wisdom,
Our weakness now supply.
