“Trinity! Higher than any being, any divinity, any goodness!”

Trinity! Higher than any being,
any divinity, any goodness!
Guide of Christians in the wisdom of heaven!
Lead us up beyond unknowing and light,
up to the farthest, highest peak
of mystic scripture,
where the mysteries of God’s Word
lie simple, absolute and unchangeable
in the brilliant darkness of a hidden silence.
Amid the deepest shadow they pour overwhelming light
on what is most manifest.
Amid the wholly unsensed and unseen
they completely fill our sightless minds
with treasures beyond all beauty.

  1. This is my favorite proemion. Notice how the Trinity leads us up to the peak of mystic Scripture, and not the other way around. Fascinating!
