I wanted to write a worship song that dealt with the Trinity, not only substantive considerations, but also in the actions of the Godhead. I chose to devote one verse to each Person, then a separate verse about their unity. I did some reading of what the Westminster Confession had on this subject, as well as the Nicene Creed‘s formulation of Trinitarian relationships. Most of the meat behind the words are based on these two documents.
Originally, I wanted to have each verse offer a praise, request and statement of character from each Member, but didn’t adhere too hard to that idea.
Originally the title was God, the Sovereign Creator, but wanted to give more of a Trinitarian bent, so I changed the title (and first line) to God, the Father, Creator.
It’s a pretty short song, as the lyrics come kind of quick. Maybe it would be smart to start and finish the song with the last verse, further illustrating the diversity and unity within the Godhead.

And here’s the lyrics:
God, the Father, Creator
Of my life and so much more
With all creation we bow our knee
And give rightful praise to Thee
Jesus, come and wash away
Every sin your blood has paid
A perfect life for imperfect man
Redeeming those according to God’s plan
Holy Spirit, the giver of life
With Father, Son is glorified
Come breathe new life into old
That we may abound in hope
God, Three in One perfect Trinity
In substance, power and eternity
God the Father, Son and Holy Ghost
To You we give our all and utmost
