Song to the Trinity (Father I Know) - Stanley

This hymn about the Trinity was written by English Roman Catholic singer, songwriter and liturgical musician, Mike Stanley (1965-2013), in 1990

It is set to an Irish traditional waltz tune from Fermanagh, which is associated with the folk-song Buachaill ón Éirne (The Boy from Lough Erne) - also known as Come by the Hills. The composer is unknown, and most people treat the tune as though it is in the public domain.

Lyrics

The lyrics are copyright so cannot be reproduced here. But they are currently available on the CJM Music website. A rough outline is:
1  Father, I know that your love for me knows no bounds.
.... Then take me home Father, Spirit and Son, my master and friend

2  Spirit, I know that your truth is spoken each day.
... For in you Father, Spirit and Son, the battle is won.

3  Jesus, I know that your love for me has no end.
... Through my prayer, Father, Spirit and Son, your grace is revealed.

KEEP IN CASE ORIGINAL IS REMOVED, BUT DO NOT DISPLAY
Father, I know that your love for me knows no bounds.
When darkness has fallen
your voice from the heavens resounds.
Saying “Trust and believe, come and walk on my road to its end”.
Then take me home Father, Spirit and Son,
my master and friend

Spirit, I know that your truth is spoken each day.
But power and greed change the creed, leaving truth to decay.
So let the heavens resound with hosannas to you, Holy One,
For in you Father, Spirit and Son
the battle is won.

Jesus, I know that your love for me has no end.
My faith growing stronger each day that on you I depend.
When my doubting subsides,
when I’m finally brought to my knees;
Through my prayer, Father, Spirit and Son,
your grace is revealed.
