Father, we adore you plus

A bit late posting this one, with Trinity Sunday having come and gone yesterday.

Anyhow … in selecting music for yesterday, I was reflecting on appropriate songs to celebrate God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit — Creator, Redeemer, Sustainer.  For sure, I could have used the old 1970s staple: Father we adore you.  Trouble was, it seemed so “same old, same old”.

Then, the Spirit hit me.  I envisaged it with a new “Jack Johnson” feel – with the emphasis on the off-beat of the bar, and a middle-section included.  Still with the option of most of it being sung as a 2 or 2 part round.

And so the song came out as what I’ve dubbed: Father, we adore you +
I used it at two of our services at Oxley yesterday.  It was well-received, so will do it again some time. Maybe even this time next year!

Here it is:

Father we adore you
Lay our lives before you
How we love you

Jesus …

Spirit …

Bridge:
We praise you, Lord
God – three, yet one
We praise you Father, Spirit, Son
We praise you, Lord
For us, you’ve come
Come bless us:  Father, Spirit, Son


Father we adore you
Lay our lives before you
How we love you

Jesus …

Spirit …
