Welcome!  Hymns have been and continue to be a real source of inspiration to me.  My desire in this blog is to share special hymns with my readers hoping that the words will minister to them, especially in times of great personal need.  If one of these hymns ministers to you, please take time to leave a comment so that I know that my blog is helping others as much as it helps me. Sometimes I will also provide a link where you can go to hear the hymn played.  So, please join me here each week and sing along as we praise God together.

      "The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen." ( 2 Corinthians 13:14).  The Trinitarian hymn, "Praise Ye The Triune God!", was written by Elizabeth Charles (1828-1896) in 1858.  Mrs. Charles is said to have written over fifty books, the majority of which  were of a semi-religious character. She also wrote and translated several hymns.  Today believers recognize the existence, impact and importance of the Trinity in our lives even though the word Trinity does not actually appear in the Bible. This hymn brings praise and honor to God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit, something that we should learn to do daily. 
          For excellent comments about the Trinity and its relationship to this hymn I would recommend the book "Amazing Grace - 366 Inspiring Hymn Stories for Daily Devotionals" by Kenneth W. Osbeck, published by Kregel Publications.  See his devotional for May 25 printed on Page 160. 
         This beautiful hymn praises the loving kindness of the Father, the compassion of the Savior, and the comfort of the Spirit.  What an awesome God we serve! Take time this week to praise the three persons of the Trinity as they are active in our world and in our lives.  Praise ye the triune God!

1    Praise ye the Father for His loving-kindness,
tenderly caring for His erring children;
praise Him, ye angels; praise Him in the heavens;
praise to the Savior!

2    Praise ye the Savior for His deep compassion,
graciously caring for His chosen people;
young men and maidens, ye old men and children,
praise to the Savior!

3    Praise ye the Spirit, Comforter of Israel,
sent from the Father and the Son to bless us;
praise to the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit!
Praise to the triune God!

Listen to it here.   PRAISE
