Sing Praise to our Creator (O most holy Trinity)

Song title over a green background blended with a triangular trinity symbol - 1 Sing praise to our Creator, O you of Adam's race — God's children by adoption, baptised into his grace. Chorus: O most holy Trinity, Undivided Unity; Holy God, mighty God, God immortal, be adored. 2 To Jesus Christ give glory, God's co-eternal Son; as members of his Body we live in him as one. 3 And praise the Holy Spirit poured forth upon the earth; who sanctifies and guides us, made strong in our rebirth
This hymn about the Trinity was written by Dutch-American Roman Catholic liturgist, composer and publisher Omer Westendorf (1916-1997) .   It was first published in 1962 under the pen-name Paul Francis, by (the predecessor to) World Library Publications.

Some sources attribute the refrain to Mark Evans, while others (ref) suggest that this per perhaps an alias.   However the same text appears in O God Almighty Father, which was published in 1959.

With meter 7.6.7.6 with refrain, the is almost always set to the tune GOTT VATER SEI GEPRIESEN from the Limburg Gesangbuch, a German hymnal published in 1838.

It has been included in a number of hymnals, and is still available from World Library's subscriber download service.  However no in-print sources of sheet music have been found.
