Inspired by . . . Hymns of Faith: Holy, Holy, Holy

O Lord, grant that I may desire Thee, and desiring Thee, seek Thee, and seeking Thee, find Thee, and finding Thee, be satisfied with Thee forever.

Written nearly two hundred years ago it is difficult to find a hymn used across all denominations of faith with so very little variation of text. Originally written for Trinity Sunday and inspired by the Nicene Creed (325 AD) Reginald Heber's hymn praises God in all His fullness and perfection.

Mighty, yet merciful. The image of the angels and saints together, worshiping the One, alone, Who is perfect in power, love, and unity renders us nearly breathless, unable to sing.

And still, our souls cry out: 

Holy, Holy, Holy! Lord God Almighty!
All Thy works shall praise Thy name in earth and sky and sea.
Holy, Holy, Holy! Merciful and mighty!
God in three persons, blessed Trinity.

Perhaps worship, more than any other spiritual discipline, nurtures the spiritual growth of a Christian. Our worship is a reflection of our relationship with God. Learning to worship, in spirit and truth, should be a believer's lifetime pursuit. 

I pray that these daily insights into our hymns of faith have inspired you toward worship.
