Father we Adore You / Father I Adore You

This is a worship chorus expressing adoration, personal sacrifice and love of the three persons of the Trinity.

It was composed by American housewife Terrye Coelho Strom in 1971 when she was a recent convert to Christianity.

The tune and words are simple enough to be sung unaccompanied, and it simple enough for children or relatively unskilled musicians, but still robust enough to be arranged for adult use. It can be sung as a round.

With meter 6.6.4, the tune it is set to is called MARANATHA.

It was first published in 1972 by Maranatha! Music, who continue to hold the copyright.  Because it is so simple, many different arrangements have been made. The original lyrics were in the first person "Father I adore ...", but were quickly adapted for communal use as "... we adore you".
