There are three who give testimony in heaven:
the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost:
and these three are one. (Rheims NT, 1582)

One Lord, one faith, one baptism,
One God and Father of all, who is above all,
and through all, and in you all,
And who is blessed for ever and ever. Amen.


Holy, holy, holy, Lord God of hosts.
Heaven and earth are full of Thy glory.
