Classic Hymn’s call to Apologetics

Following Cathryn’s book study this past Tuesday, the words of this hymn kept running through my mind.  Join us next Tuesday as Cathryn continues to build the cumulative case for the existence of this perfectly Holy God, because our culture argues that there is “no evidence” that God even exists!
Meanwhile, take a few quiet moments to read and meditate on these lyrics.

 

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! All the saints adore thee,
casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea;
cherubim and seraphim falling down before thee,
who wert, and art, and evermore shalt be.

Holy, holy, holy! Though the darkness hide thee,
though the eye of sinful man thy glory may not see
,*

only thou art holy; there is none beside thee
perfect in pow’r, in love, and purity.

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!

* These lines tell us why apologetics is necessary.  We are commanded to love God with our minds, to study the evidence in creation and to be prepared to stand firm in a God-defying, God-denying culture.
