Low or high,
sink or fly,
I know there’s God beyond me:
Lower than the lowest low,
where the deepest waters flow,
Higher than the highest high,
making rainbows in the sky,
Up or down,
smile or frown,
I know there’s God beyond me.

Weak or strong,
right or wrong,
I know there’s God beside me:
Jesus our Emmanuel
is God with us through heav’n and hell,
Overcoming death and sin,
life and goodness breaking in,
Live or die,
laugh or cry,
I know there’s God beside me.

Wait or go,
quick or slow,
I know there’s God within me:
Breathing in me day by day,
or taking all my breath away,
Shocking into silent awe,
then empow’ring even more!
Lively, numb,
inspired or dumb,
I know there’s God within me.

God the Father, God the Son,
and God the Holy Spirit:
Three the ways that God is known
Yet one the loving purpose shown!
Heaven and earth together bound!
God in human hearts is found!
One in Three, God’s there for me,
Beyond, beside, within me.

Holy, Holy, Holy!
Lord God Almighty!
Early in the morning our song shall rise to thee;
Holy, Holy, Holy!
Merciful and mighty!
God in three Persons, Blessed Trinity!

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!
